    I have been working at Ixia full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You get to work on interesting projects. Since it is FPGAs, there is less pressure than working on ASICs since you can always fix your mistakes.

    Cons

    Management is terrible and don't care about employees. They will claim to care and ask for feedback and do lots of surveys, but they will never do anything about it. It's all for show. Compensation used to be better, but due to massive growth of the company in recent years, stocks/bonuses/raises have all been cut. If you complain about it, they tell you that not everyone got that much at all, so just be glad you got something!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making false promises about caring about employees when your actions don't support your words. Instead of all talk, why don't you actually do something about it and treat employees better?

    Pros

    Good engineering team,
    flexible hours,
    sponsored lunch

    Cons

    So-so compensation,
    too many managers,
    company does not appreciate people,
    and now board of directors managed to fire key technology leader - Vic Alston, bunch of cowardly traitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change board of directors, reduce managers, hire more engineers.

    Approves of CEO
