    Pros

    Challenger and satisfying environment, where hard work and out of the box thinking gets recognized. Career advancement, fair compensation and clear direction from executives There will be a lot of hard feelings and negative reviews mostly from folks whose company was acquired by Ixia and their position was cut. However I know first hand that Ixia still took very good care of everyone.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to Management

    The new CEO brings a great sense of vision and experience. The companies future is on the right track

    Pros

    Pay is definitely in line with industry standards, benefits are good.

    Cons

    Some product launches are rocky. Poor product definitions in the area of support and sales "bullets".

    Advice to Management

    Product managers need to "own" the product entirely, including better support training, documentation, related whote papers, sales "golden bullets". Better insight into customer pain and selling points are needed for sales to hit the ground running.

    Great Technology company on the bleeding edge of Network Equipment design, not the greatest strategic group of leaders.

    Pros

    Working with companies designing new telecommunications equipment and the networks of the future. The people are great, really nice and professional. Compensation is very good

    Cons

    Ixia is having tough time dealing with market changes to cloud and software centric networks. Too many changes in direction and long term strategy Marketing! Yeah that's what I mean, what marketing?

    Advice to Management

    Combine your two major business units or sell/split one of them off. It's like working for two different companies right now.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are competitive with other tech companies.

    Cons

    The company doesn't seem to have a long-term strategy. Hopefully the new CEO will be able to change that. The culture is mainly talk and posters - basically it's work 24/7.

    Pros

    Mostly positive work environment where you could talk to management and they would try their best to help you with your goals and career objectives. A lot of free snacks and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours. Low morale due to layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Better strategic planning. LISTEN to the employees - while some of the feedback may just be gripes or requests that are not feasible given the current status of the business, there are a lot of smart people with plenty of good ideas that could help the company succeed.
