    I have been working at Ixia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Competitive Salary 2. Kolkata is good since it survived the lay off 2013 Oct, Bangalore fully closed 3. There are still some benefits given to employees outside CTC (trasnport, food coupons, medical/life insurance etc) which is rare in Kolkata. 4. You tend too have the feeling that you are market leader and woking with the latest technologies

    Cons

    Well there are many 1. Back stabbing in rampant. Here nobody wants/likes to see you succeed 2. Too much oiling is needed for any success. Those who can do that get out of turns promotions every year, I cant name anyone but there are many who have sticked just because they are fond of the management 3. HR and india's top management is worst possible. You will feel that HR doesn't exist. 4. Excessive wasted of money by Ixia's top management in India. They will travel to and fro from Bangalore and stay in 7 star hotels always - but when it comes to general employees they will say that budget is tight 5. Needless to say, if you are working for Ixia and you dont oil the top management - then you will need a lot of luck to retain your job. Lay offs are always coming every 2-3 years and when that happens you dont know when you time is up. 6. Technically challenged Managers are rampant. While some managers are really good, most are like .. i dont know what. They should do some training under some random software engineer 1s!! Advise to the employees: Start oiling if you can and pretend to work if you want to survive. But sadly i cant do the first one and dont need the 2nd one :)

    Advice to Management

    Listen, listen and listen to employees. They are the one who are the bread earners. Stop giving vague speeches. Nobody needs them


  2. Good place to work if you have self motivation and eagerness to learn

    I have been working at Ixia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation, very competitive with other companies working in the field Latest Technologies in Networking Area, one will always get scope to work on latest technologies that are coming in networking area

    Cons

    Some time work pressure is very high, it might also sustain for couple of months. Some time for project necessity, some monotonous work might continue. But I think this is common to any company.
