Very good place to work

Education (Current Employee)
Austin, TX (US)

I have been working at National Instruments as a contractor for more than a year

ProsThere are many reasons I would like to share with you as to why its such a great place to work, but here are a few: The environment here is very professional and at the same time you enjoy yourself while working with in the different teams. The small forest here is a fantastic way to enjoy the outdoors while still working from your laptop. The cafeteria has great breakfast and lunch. There's a gym, basketball court and team bicycle riding. And that's just during lunch. There is always a good game of volleyball going on after work.

ConsHonestly I never had a reason to feel dissatisfied.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the deck parties and the general life training meetings! From home buying to managing your financing, healthy life strategies etc...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
