    I worked at Net Optics

    Pros

    (Net Optics was recently acquired by Ixia, so this review is historical in nature). This was a fun company to work for; impressive "team-building" events, regular company perks, generally up-beat atmosphere fuelled by a charismatic CEO.

    Cons

    There were, in reality, 2 company leaders; the owner and the CEO. In a sense, Net Optics was comprised of 2 different sub-companies with their own measures and "virtual" reporting structures; the Jewish team and the "rest". The Jewish group acted very entitled, which created an "us" and "them" structure and a feeling that you needed to constantly "watch your back".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A company priding itself on being apolitical turned out to be quite the opposite, with the added challenge of the cultural bias.

    I worked at Net Optics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Products are decent and are generally well made and priced competitively. Some of the technical staff are quite good and helpful. A few of the inside reps are excellent.

    Cons

    Poor executive sales leadership. Mediocre sales compensation plan, low commission rates. Very confusing product configuration and quote system. Some of the top executives are greedy and egocentric and don't value employee contributions and are not supportive as a whole. Some of the technical staff pass the buck and make excuses and are not team oriented or customer centric.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company because you don't have a clue how to run a sales organization or an effective technology developer.

    Cons

    long ours , unrealistic expectations, poor management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop being in meetings all day talking about working and actually work . start getting to know your employees as people, not numbers. start rewarding above average work with food trucks and try bonuses and raises.
