Good place to start a career.

Software Engineer I (Current Employee)
Calcutta

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

Pros1. No existent politics, performance oriented
2. Recognition of talent,
3. Friendly and supportive management,
4. Casual and friendly work environment,
5. Good exposure to cutting edge technology,
6. Smart and talented seniors, good guidance,
7. Perks

Cons1. 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Worst Company to work for in India - worst than services company.

Principal Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Calcutta

I have been working at Ixia full-time for more than 3 years

ProsNone - I dont have anything good to write about.They have a good marketing team for which products are selling and not because of quality

Consmanagement and work culture is pathetic.HR are puppets.Back stabbing and office politics
is rampant.Oiling to senior management is the key to success. Ixia Kolkata - back stabbing between colleagues is rampant. The higher management is moron.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe management is sick.While hiring hr will promise that you will get full variable pay.People mentality are like that of "frogs in a well" and have not seen the outside world.Most of them wouldnot get jobs if moved out of kolkata.Quality of deliverables is horrible. I dont know how the equipment is getting sold in the market.Focus is on Quality and not on Quantity.Higher management treats employee as daily labourers.Technically quite unsound.The show is running just because of few old time development folks otherwise this unit would have got closed.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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.
