    Pros

    A few good people that want to do something big.

    Cons

    I won't try to 'hype' the company like others here. Working for companies like this should come with competitive pay and perks, and a much stronger vision and sense of inclusion. Toward the end, I saw low morale, although management does try to pump people up. Not sure if it works. There is a pulse that is missing, and it shows. People here work very hard, but it doesn't seem to translate into smiling faces.

    Ixia has some winning solutions, but the marketing and execution is lacking. Conservative company that needs someone at the helm who understands how to be a strong advocate for their offerings.

    Advice to Management

    There is more to life than your stock price and shareholders. Remember the people who are supporting you. Put your people first. And park your ego at the door.

    You will loose peace of mind within in 3 months of working. You can see a lot Junk people , who doesnt want to work and makes you irritated to the core .

    It will be surprised to see such a worst management at APAC from top level , who doesnt even have proper degrees and are weak at buisness development .

    I strongly recommended who is interested in politics can join Ixia but not to work .Worst suppot and sales teams

    Make APAC hiring better
    APAC managrs to be proffessional to make the work environment better for other employees to work
