    I worked at Ixia as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Up and coming company culture and lots of upward mobility.
    Their stock is always strong and the company is continually bringing in new acquisitions.

    Great snackroom!!

    Cons

    Not many...
    The workforce can be kind of volatile because Ixia is such a changing company, so if you like to see the same faces in the office this might not be the place for you.

    Pros

    Amazing tech, brilliant people, approachable leadership, solid compensation, many offices to work from, keen focus on partners & customers, bright outlook.

    Cons

    room to grow in process maturity, infighting across some engineering "fiefdoms" is frustrating,

    Hold people accountable. Hire slowly/ire quickly. Keep listening to the customer. Don't just do your best, do whats required.

    Pros

    Innovative, great people, leading edge, work life balance. You get to work on some really cool tech with folks that have many years of experience on the leading edge.

    Cons

    If you don't like fast pace this might not be the place for you, there is a work life balance but you need to be fast and efficient at your job. No place for day dreaming.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more graduates as the business grows.

    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
