I worked at National Instruments full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Growing, stable industry that NI is revolutionizing
Equality - even Dr T has a cube!
Great leadership
True long term vision
Growth leads to new opportunities
Good opportunities to visit with customers and travel
Great campus
They really care for their employees
Vision driven
Continued technology investment to sustain a differentiated position against competition.

Cons

Austin - too hot and a cultural wasteland (sorry Austin!).
Not much room to change jobs unless you are in the US.
Coach travel for everyone, including Dr. T so you can't really argue with that!
Getting to be a large company and that means having to pay attention to Wall St (driven by the mighty $)

Advice to Management

Keep on doing what you are do.
Keep on communicating.

    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.
