  1. The latest network technologies will come to you but dont expect a fair and just meritocracy.

    Pros

    Ability to work on the latest network and app technologies of the internet.
    Good freedom of how to work ... Can start late if you have some chores to finish.
    If tough problems interest you ..you will surely get a few.
    Ownership of work ..
    Casual atmosphere at work
    .. With peers and managers.
    Good pay w.r.t Kolkata but that alone.

    Cons

    Dont expect bonuses .... Getting lesser every year.
    Very clear downward difference from Bangalore salaries... Comparing with peers in similar companies in Bangalore can sometimes cause heartburn.Need to accept that and get on with it.
    Too much of emphasis on big bang demoes . tools . cool sounding names and next gen architectures not of much use to Ixia making money ... But much of that is quite interesting as well.
    Not much appreciation of deep technical stuff ... Need to create your own world of zen to not worry about it.
    Fair amount of sometimes very stupid Indian politics but can be safely ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say ... Maybe spare some thought to the customer , the tiny nitty gritties and sometimes very complex ones . That detail got us to where we are but now with the 20000 feet view I think Ixia is forgetting how it reached till here. There is more to it than branding and big talk. Maybe a little more time and space for the deep technical stuff /staff instead of the glitzy screensavers.

    Pros

    Good compensation, very competitive with other companies working in the field
    Latest Technologies in Networking Area, one will always get scope to work on latest technologies that are coming in networking area

    Cons

    Some time work pressure is very high, it might also sustain for couple of months.
    Some time for project necessity, some monotonous work might continue. But I think this is common to any company.

    1. Efficiency measured on performance.Hence overtime is a common phenomenon. This does not amount to unsatisfactory job. Those who are technically proficient will love the job. Those who are not, will have a hard time.

    Pros

    Good opportunities for growth, a lot of technology to work with

    Cons

    The processes are not well structured and there are no proper channels for interaction between sales support and engineering. A little haphazard I would say. The HR has a long way to go and needs a lot of improvements needed.

    Advice to Management

    Facilities to the employees should be improved be it office space, recreation, cafeteria among others.
