    I worked at Ixia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of management is very nice. Hours are long, but worth the time to do your job. Benefits are very good. Hours are very flexible as long as you get your job done on time.

    Cons

    Is at times a stressful environment. with schedules constantly changing and long hours. Employees in some departments are always pointing the finger at others to get work done, rather unproductive especially in MFG. Seems like most of them waste more time looking at the internet or arguing over who is supposed do what than actually doing real work. It was sometimes called the country club due to people looking as though they had nothing to do, no one seems to know what multitasking is. Promotions and good raises are hard to get unless you really step up and work very long hours to meet deadlines

    Advice to Management

    We used to have a program that said managers and supervisors should walk around to see what employees are doing. That seems to not happen as I saw many people just sitting around while others do all the work.

    I have been working at Ixia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ixia has a diverse global workforce striving to provide customers with the best products for business. Employees take pride in ensuring customer's product questions and issues are quickly addressed.

    Cons

    Corporate executives have failed to state that the divisiveness promoted by the incoming president and his political appointees will not be tolerated at Ixia or in any dealings that Ixia has/will participate.

    Advice to Management

    Regardless of personal political affiliations, all employers have a responsibility to take a stand against hatred and show support of their diverse employee and customer populations that have been marginalized and targeted. Promotion of hatred on this scale must not be ignored.

    Pros

    Interesting leading-edge technologies, creative opportunities, decent company values. Open to new ideas. Upper management came through engineering ranks.

    Fractured culture due to so many acquisitions and global spread. Some divisions seem favored and some seem unfavored. Murky roadmap on some products.
