  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Marlow, England (UK)

I have been working at Ixia

Pros

Pension is good.
Pay can be good if you negotiate well in the beginning but don't expect pay rises

Cons

Bullying, dishonest management always looking to screw the employee. only route to progression is through brown nosing and stabbing colleagues in the back. Very long hours for no reward. Unachievable targets set to reduce commission payouts. Did I mention the Bullying??
If you manage to negotiate a good wage when you get the job that will be held against you, don't expect pay rises and you will always feel like you living with the sword of Damocles over your head.
Management by fear approach by the VP of Sales, supported by the senior US management as well as the UK Sales manager. Managers aren't managers they are yes men, thugs and henchmen for the VP of Sales. A Truly Toxic and Hostile environment to work in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value you your people they will work better for you if you respect them and stop the bulling. Your staff is demoralized, demotivated and desperate. Ixia's core values should apply to the Senior management MORE than to the employees, lead by example, be fair and decent.
A fish rots from the head

    Pros

    Good initial pay if negotiated well. Managers can be fooled if you play smart with them. US travel almost certain max period of 3 weeks. Lot of holidays due to bands. small company. known well in industory

    Cons

    Managers shout on employees. Favorism is prevalent. You got to be favorite of managers to grow rather perform well. Unclear performance appraisal criteria. Pitiful rewards and salaries. False promises to keep you around. Typical closed mindset from people who definitely have not seen the industry, have been working in small local companies. no career growth or just for the name sake. Environment does not expose much about the skills respected by industry. the domain changes so much that you do not get chance to know anything but learn "complete by EoB". You would surely notice lack of cash spending on employee development, basic office facilities. No work from home policy. You are expected to work very long hours and on weekends. Add to all this it's at Kolkata. My suggestion dont even think about it working here. mostly weak leaders and managers. no industry standard practices. feels like primitive way of working, never clear about why someone gets rewards, promotion etc. mostly those are people near to managers. no transparency. dont work here unless you are shrewd politician

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    check the industry pay, policies, have transparency with genuine promises than false promises to keep people around. have parallel path of taking feedback regularly from everyone and not just few people
