    I have been working at Ixia full-time

    Pros

    Ixia salaries and benefits are good and the markets we serve (test solutions for networks, applications, devices, and security, and network visibility) are interesting.

    Cons

    Ixia has some very bright and qualified employees, but may not do all it can to train and encourage promotion of employees for leadership and strategic positions.

    Advice to Management

    To stack the odds more in our favor of getting quality leadership that really knows our business, look within and build your employee talent pool rather than rolling the dice on hiring external for strategic positions.

    Pros

    With new CEO, things are appearing to be moving in the right direction. Not much culture, but that provides a good work-life balance. Office is mostly lax and exec are easy to talk to.

    Cons

    Had a rough past couple of years so a lot of good people left, doesn't appear that those people are being replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Keep salaries competitive to keep the best people around. Things are going pretty well, let's keep moving in this direction.
