    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.

    I have been working at Ixia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with companies designing new telecommunications equipment and the networks of the future.
    The people are great, really nice and professional.
    Compensation is very good

    Cons

    Ixia is having tough time dealing with market changes to cloud and software centric networks.
    Too many changes in direction and long term strategy
    Marketing! Yeah that's what I mean, what marketing?

    Advice to Management

    Combine your two major business units or sell/split one of them off. It's like working for two different companies right now.
