Pretty good so far, its a small company so there are plenty of opportunities for growth

Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at Ixia full-time for more than a year

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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementFacilities to the employees should be improved be it office space, recreation, cafeteria among others.
