    I worked at Ixia full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Ixia full-time

    Pros

    Awsome people and a dynamic environment. One can learn a lot in a relative short amount of time. Very good local management and a very relaxed working environment with a lot a benefits.

    Cons

    Unbalanced workload between maintenance and new feature development. In some periods work tends to be monotonous. Being a relatively large company a shift in direction takes a long time and decissions have to come from top levels.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Bucharest (Romania)
    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Bucharest (Romania)

    I have been working at Ixia full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Talented co-workers
    Decent salary & benefits
    Chance to work with bleeding edge network technologies

    Cons

    Need to do extra hours sometimes, due to working with people from different time zones (India/US)
    Somewhat lack of innovation, like most big companies
    Lack of focus on quality. Developers are spending way too much time on fixing bugs vs creating new solutions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to keep engineers on developing new features. Bug fixing should take much less time.

    Pros

    Working for a company that develops a successful product. One has the opportunity of developing both technical and soft skills.

    Cons

    If working in the same project for a long period you won't have the chance of learning new technologies.
    Sometimes working in a geographically distributed environment can become challenging.

    Pros

    Overall not a bad place to work, benefits are good.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times. Management top heavy. Seems like a lot of the good talent eventually leaves. Some departments have no idea what "TEAM" means. This used to really be the place to work a few years ago
