    Pros

    Please don't Join Ixia. It will spoil your life and career.

    Cons

    It's not right place to work long for good people.
    1. Work Culture is not good. No work -life balance.
    2. No rules and regulations.
    3. In some team Managers are not Educated up to the mark. Senior manager with Diploma in Non-IT knowledge. Poor management and difficult to work. Very difficult to work under them. Not sure why company is paying them, why not hire right guy.
    4. HR Department is too much bogus. Same with HR Manager, doesn't have right qualifications.
    5. Poor recognition
    6. Extreme politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Please remove the managers who don't have right suitable education background. Education matters and if you ignore you are basically going to mesh up.
    2. Remove big fat salary guys, who actually doesn't add more value.
