Former Employee - Principal Software Engineer in Calabasas, CA

I worked at Ixia full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

cutting edge technologies
decent benefits
nice facilities

Cons

very destructive work environment
permanent state of emergency
death march is the standard way of getting things done
artificially created internal competition destroys the spirit
guaranteed burnout after few years

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Perhaps honesty is better long term strategy than trying to play people against each other. Competition should come from the outside, not inside.

    I worked at Ixia full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Growth of company, future earnings.

    Cons

    Long drawn out process with little direction. Senior IT management will not admit they have no direction and don't know how to make decisions because they lack experience. IT management has very little power since the business people make IT decisions.Long drawn out process with little direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It you don't know what you're looking for and don't know the solution first it's impossible to interview people.

    I have been working at Ixia

    Pros

    Bleeding edge technology, a lot of interesting challenges (if you are in the right team). A lot of smart people around. Good benefits package.

    Cons

    The culture in the company definitely changed. A lot of smart people left or were let go. Management treats people like resource. Bug numbers is the only game in town. With overseas locations work-life balance is nonexistent.
