    Approves of CEO

    I worked at National Instruments full-time

    Pros

    The exposure you get at the start of your career is something very few companies offer. Gets opportunity to speak with frontline engineers of high profile companies. The people working there are highly skilled and good natured. Salary package is definitely one of the best in this sector.

    Cons

    The company attitude towards taking harsh decisions. Every knowledge gained will be tied to NI products and its environment. There will be a dependency on NI platform if you try to switch to another job.
