    I have been working at Ixia

    Pros

    Challenger and satisfying environment, where hard work and out of the box thinking gets recognized. Career advancement, fair compensation and clear direction from executives

    There will be a lot of hard feelings and negative reviews mostly from folks whose company was acquired by Ixia and their position was cut. However I know first hand that Ixia still took very good care of everyone.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new CEO brings a great sense of vision and experience. The companies future is on the right track

    I have been working at Ixia

    Pros

    Pay is definitely in line with industry standards, benefits are good.

    Cons

    Some product launches are rocky. Poor product definitions in the area of support and sales "bullets".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Product managers need to "own" the product entirely, including better support training, documentation, related whote papers, sales "golden bullets". Better insight into customer pain and selling points are needed for sales to hit the ground running.

    Working for a company that develops a successful product. One has the opportunity of developing both technical and soft skills.

    If working in the same project for a long period you won't have the chance of learning new technologies.
