    Pros

    Ixia offers a nice package of benefits/perks, good compensation and tries to make a culture of training/rewarding/keeping the good employees. Also, the management consists of people trained to be leaders and not just a bunch of puppets trying to squeeze every bit of work out of their employees.

    Cons

    There are times when the work pressure feels like it is a bit too much.

    Pros

    great team, good salary and social benefits. All in all a great place to work - with some negative points at the Managerial Level in UK. I would recommend Ixia as a place to work.

    Cons

    Missing work life balance. The Top EMEA Management is a joke. They are no leaders - they are managers and don´t do what´s necessary to make things possible or work. They don´t listen to experts and don´t eat their own cooking. They are doubtful and full of fear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your experts in the countries. That would help in most of the situations - either in good or bad.
