Great work environment, draconian pay policies
Web Developer (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – March 16, 2018
National Instruments hired me in one role, and when my managers learned I had web programming skills, they changed my position to accommodate those skills. They did not, however, raise my pay to match the salary I earned at my previous job for the same amount of work.
They have policies which prevented my manager from matching that salary for the entire duration of my employment. I stayed with National Instruments during the 2008 financial crisis, having already lived through the 2001 down turn.
As much as I enjoyed my coworkers and the work environment, the pay left me in years of debt. It was the worst financial decision I made.
