    Pros

    Great workplace atmosphere, latest technological trends and market intensive solutions provided. Proper training as required to work on new projects and assignments given.

    Have a stronger talent management criteria. Compensation is not at par with the market, or doesnt justify the amount workload allotted.

    I worked at Ixia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of management is very nice. Hours are long, but worth the time to do your job. Benefits are very good. Hours are very flexible as long as you get your job done on time.

    Cons

    Is at times a stressful environment. with schedules constantly changing and long hours. Employees in some departments are always pointing the finger at others to get work done, rather unproductive especially in MFG. Seems like most of them waste more time looking at the internet or arguing over who is supposed do what than actually doing real work. It was sometimes called the country club due to people looking as though they had nothing to do, no one seems to know what multitasking is. Promotions and good raises are hard to get unless you really step up and work very long hours to meet deadlines

    Advice to Management

    We used to have a program that said managers and supervisors should walk around to see what employees are doing. That seems to not happen as I saw many people just sitting around while others do all the work.
