I have been working at National Instruments full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The company culture is fantastic - people are approachable, the attitudes are positive, there's a lot of energy in every department. Most departments have a great work hard/play hard approach. If you work hard/smart there are good opportunities to move into new roles and advance in the company. NI hires bright, motivated people that want to get things done. NI is also very stable - there's never been a layoff and the company is run in a conservative manner.

Cons

Over time, as the company has grown, some bureaucracy has set in the makes it more difficult to get things done as compared to the past. The bureaucracy is not nearly as bad as many other companies, however. Also, the total compensation package of the company used to be above average and had some unique advantages; however, as the company has grown the overall compensation has become pretty average.

Advice to Management

Figure out ways to differentiate the total compensation package from the rest of the industry.

    Pros

    Very friendly workplace environment. As a branch of an American company, the culture was different from a typical Japanese corporation. If you can persuade others that your ideas are worthwhile, enough effort can make it happen.

    Cons

    Management seems to be struggling with both sales and understanding the Japanese market.
    This struggle sometimes lead to decrease in transparency of management.
