    I have been working at National Instruments full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, smart people, and a very approachable management make NI a comfortable and enjoyable place to work.

    Cons

    The starting salaries are on the low end, and it gets worse as the longer you are there. They do not give raises for promotions and yearly raises only sometimes cover the cost of inflation.

    Advice to Management

    People see NI as a great place to start, not a great place to build a career. It is a bummer that you create such a great environment and people feel driven to leave to find work that will compensate them properly.

    Pros

    National Instruments company culture and positive, upbeat self-image, which contributes to enthusiastic and friendly co-workers. Annual surveys about employee satisfaction seem to produce broad, steady improvement, and helps the company keep up with changing employee care-abouts.

    Cons

    The wrong manager can make your experience miserable. Sometimes the positive self-image leads to self-deception, and blindness to its own faults.
