    Pros

    Ixia offers a nice package of benefits/perks, good compensation and tries to make a culture of training/rewarding/keeping the good employees. Also, the management consists of people trained to be leaders and not just a bunch of puppets trying to squeeze every bit of work out of their employees.

    Cons

    There are times when the work pressure feels like it is a bit too much.
