    RSM - EMEA

    RSM (Former Employee) Emea (Indonesia)

    Prosgreat 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.

    ConsMissing 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 Senior ManagementListen to your experts in the countries. That would help in most of the situations - either in good or bad.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to learn

    Software Engineer I (Current Employee)

    ProsAwsome 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.

    ConsUnbalanced 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.

    Good place to grow up professionally

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Bucharest (Romania)

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

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

    Great place to work/learn

    Software Engineer I (Former Employee) Bucharest (Romania)

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

    ConsIf 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.

    The 'ME" Syndrome

    Engineering (Current Employee) Calabasas, CA (US)

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

    ConsCan 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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
