    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.
