    I worked at Ixia

    Pros

    Leading edge technology with current and rich development environment. Open communication between departments. Very flexible work hours. Very good benefits.

    Cons

    High expectations to work long hours within development and QA engineering. Teams split across international sites makes it difficult to communicate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider ways to reduce stress to employees, by encouraging a balance between work, family and community. The seven core values need to be lived up to.

  2. The latest network technologies will come to you but dont expect a fair and just meritocracy.

    I have been working at Ixia full-time

    Pros

    Ability to work on the latest network and app technologies of the internet.
    Good freedom of how to work ... Can start late if you have some chores to finish.
    If tough problems interest you ..you will surely get a few.
    Ownership of work ..
    Casual atmosphere at work
    .. With peers and managers.
    Good pay w.r.t Kolkata but that alone.

    Cons

    Dont expect bonuses .... Getting lesser every year.
    Very clear downward difference from Bangalore salaries... Comparing with peers in similar companies in Bangalore can sometimes cause heartburn.Need to accept that and get on with it.
    Too much of emphasis on big bang demoes . tools . cool sounding names and next gen architectures not of much use to Ixia making money ... But much of that is quite interesting as well.
    Not much appreciation of deep technical stuff ... Need to create your own world of zen to not worry about it.
    Fair amount of sometimes very stupid Indian politics but can be safely ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much to say ... Maybe spare some thought to the customer , the tiny nitty gritties and sometimes very complex ones . That detail got us to where we are but now with the 20000 feet view I think Ixia is forgetting how it reached till here. There is more to it than branding and big talk. Maybe a little more time and space for the deep technical stuff /staff instead of the glitzy screensavers.
