    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Bucharest (Romania)

    I have been working at Ixia full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Talented co-workers
    Decent salary & benefits
    Chance to work with bleeding edge network technologies

    Cons

    Need to do extra hours sometimes, due to working with people from different time zones (India/US)
    Somewhat lack of innovation, like most big companies
    Lack of focus on quality. Developers are spending way too much time on fixing bugs vs creating new solutions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to keep engineers on developing new features. Bug fixing should take much less time.

    Pros

    Good opportunities for growth, a lot of technology to work with
