    Pros

    With new CEO, things are appearing to be moving in the right direction. Not much culture, but that provides a good work-life balance. Office is mostly lax and exec are easy to talk to.

    Cons

    Had a rough past couple of years so a lot of good people left, doesn't appear that those people are being replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Keep salaries competitive to keep the best people around. Things are going pretty well, let's keep moving in this direction.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ixia (Austin, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    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.
