    Pros

    They are generous about letting you take time to handle family matters, of course it is at $0.

    Cons

    There is a great effort made to keep all departments from communicating with each other, the company is owned and operated by family members, either direct relations or by marriage, don't plan on getting ahead and plan on being micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Is it too late to entertain an offer from National Instruments?
