    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.
