    I have been working at Ixia full-time (more than 8 years)

    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
