Ixia is having tough time dealing with market changes to cloud and software centric networks.
Too many changes in direction and long term strategy
Marketing! Yeah that's what I mean, what marketing?Advice to ManagementAdvice
Combine your two major business units or sell/split one of them off. It's like working for two different companies right now.RecommendsNegative OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Ixia in July 2014.Interview Details
The interview process involved 6 phone interviews, over the course of 5 weeks. The questions ranged from personal to technical, and customer management. Overall the interviewers were staff and management. They all seemed to be burnt out and totally over worked. They made it seem like the company would toss them on the sword daily.
After being grilled over the phone for 5 weeks and being told I was an excellent candidate, they requested I fill out a application. I did so, and then waited. A week passed and I was told by email they were NO LONGER HIRING. Then their in house recruiter told me they are now laying people off.
This is the worst company, don't trust them, they will lead you on and string you along.No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
