Good for an internship

Bucharest (Romania)

I worked at Ixia as an intern for less than a year

ProsThere are good collaboration and team work in the company.
The company offers many advantages to employees like: health insurance, gym discount, etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be to give more freedom of speech to the employees and respect their decisions.

A career in test and measurement!

Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Ixia

ProsNever a dull moment you are always working with and exposed to all the latest and greatest technologies even before they hit the market! Very stable set of accounts.

ConsNiche industry with very narrow competitive market that makes selling difficult without constant discounting and price matching. Not much opportunity for advancement if you get pigeon holed into a specific territory or set of accounts. Responsible

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide equal opportunity to everyone and rebalance the sales organizations. Simplify product selling by dividing up the product lines and creating sales teams to align with them.
