  • Health Insurance  (38 comments)

    “offered a wide variety of health plans including dental and vision. The benefits team was always helpful in responding to questions.”

  • 401K Plan  (35 comments)

    “Very poor choices. Over my 15+ years of employment, my 401(k) account struggled to break even.”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (17 comments)

    “NI's vacation is accumulated separately of sick/bereavement/family paid-time-off and often falls short of the lifestyles of young Austin...”

    Received both vacation and sick time, there is a 3% contribution to your 401K

    401K matching is low, Bonus is super low.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Senior Software Engineer in Austin, Texas

    Good insurance package (Health, Vision, Dental, Mental, Life, etc.), ESPP is a good way to save money, compensation is below market, 15 days of PTO, Sickdays, 3 floating holidays, 10 holidays. The worst thing is the bad compensation and the non-existent bonuses. Their yearly "company performance bonus" is a joke.

    Health insurance was fair, but not inexpensive even for just employee coverage (my wife is covered by her pension)

    Great introductory time off package now that it has been changed. ESPP plan is also a great benefit. 401k matching is on-par w/ industry average.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Product Marketing Manager in Austin, Texas

    My salary is the lowest I can find amongst my peers at other organizations who do similar work. The vacation time is often insufficient for young employees. Most of my peers work for companies with either unlimited vacation or combined PTO (vacation and sick time). The health insurance, stock purchase plan, 401k, and other benefits are nice, but generally, do not bridge the gap between compensation at NI and elsewhere, especially for young, healthy employees.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Austin, Texas

    Good benefits overall. HR is really helpful with any questions you may have.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Sales in San Antonio, Texas

    Great medical benefits, pretty good 401k match, good ESPP.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Product Manager in Austin, Texas

    Due to continued budget shortfalls, the benefits packages were recently scaled back, and even basic options like Vision insurance was dropped altogether.

    NI has good benefits. Several healthcare plan options, 401K matching, Employee Stock Purchase Plan.
