    Pros

    There is a lot of free food. Some of the upper management try to help but they too are spread thin. Some good people in the office that want to make a change..

    Cons

    Expensive benefits, average pay, bonus pool just goes to management, no advancement opportunity, lower levels spread thin and expected to do more and more.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the lower levels that understand the day to day work

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with when we were Anue and then got bought out by Ixia. The change brought on a large inside sales force.

    Cons

    They were quick to move teams that they were ready to cut to another facility to do lay offs. They never intended to keep the existing sales team. It was sad but it does happen when companies get purchased.
