    A good place to work, learn and get in touch with skilled people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIxia offers a nice package of benefits/perks, good compensation and tries to make a culture of training/rewarding/keeping the good employees. Also, the management consists of people trained to be leaders and not just a bunch of puppets trying to squeeze every bit of work out of their employees.

    ConsThere are times when the work pressure feels like it is a bit too much.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
