I have been working at Ixia

Pros

good pay. some flexibility in working from home. people with good technical knowledge abound

Cons

main focus of each group, as directed by upper management, is to blame each other. everyne spends a lot of time on this. lot of effort is put into how bugs can be moved to other groups just so that at the end of the week, your team's numbers look good.
management follows an approach of lying about everything to people, and they actually think people believe them. Dishonesty seems to be the main tool used to manage people. management seems to want you to quit so that they can hire more people in cheaper countries. Probably this is why they treat employees very very badly, and have no qualms about messing with your personal time. In fact, you dont have "personal time". It all belongs to Ixia.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

please try being a little more honest with us. might make a difference. though it might not come naturally for most of you.

    Not a great place. Getting tougher and tougher day by day to remain even slightly motivated.

    Pros

    Bright and talented coworkers. Most of them would be nice to hang out with, if they weren't always so depressed about this place.

    Cons

    This might take some time
    i) No respect for employees as persons
    ii) No honesty in communication with the team
    iii) No transparency in management
    iv) No respect for work-life balance
    v) No long term planning - shifting "long term plans" every few days
    vi) Terrible competition amongst groups to switch the blame to each other
    vii) Constant pressure year round

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none whatsover.
