    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

    You get to learn new technologies as well as work with good talent. Senior folk are very helpful and thus ramp up is very fast.
    Excellent company for folk who want to learn and work in a fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Not going to campus for hiring for last couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Facility could be improved. Need more space for extra curricular activities. Please see how this can be arranged.

    Pros

    Please don't Join Ixia. It will spoil your life and career.

    Cons

    It's not right place to work long for good people.
    1. Work Culture is not good. No work -life balance.
    2. No rules and regulations.
    3. In some team Managers are not Educated up to the mark. Senior manager with Diploma in Non-IT knowledge. Poor management and difficult to work. Very difficult to work under them. Not sure why company is paying them, why not hire right guy.
    4. HR Department is too much bogus. Same with HR Manager, doesn't have right qualifications.
    5. Poor recognition
    6. Extreme politics

    Advice to Management

    1. Please remove the managers who don't have right suitable education background. Education matters and if you ignore you are basically going to mesh up.
    2. Remove big fat salary guys, who actually doesn't add more value.

    I like my job and I have no issues with management. Assignments are challenging and interesting - but you have to like the challenge.

    Does anyone know where we are going?

    Advice to Management
