Another very average tech company
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAJune 28, 2016
Lack of leadership and disorganization leaves not a lot to say about the culture here. Lots of effort, for sure. But too conservative. The earlier comment about arrogance of too many VPs destroying the motivation of the highly skilled people that work within the company seems accurate.

Not a lot of talent on the marketing side in particular, (very poor execution), since many have moved on to more mature opportunities, including me. If you're looking for a good company to work for, this might not be it until they get their marketing game together, and hire more competent leaders.
Pros
Good location close to VTA and 101 freeway
Cons
Lack of leadership, competent managers, lack of vision, no culture. Low morale.

Ixia has undergone a great deal of change in 2014 and now in 2015 with a new CEO should be on the road to better times.
Great co-workers - everyone is very supportive.

Ixia is in serious trouble.
Not disclosed (Current Employee) –  Not disclosedSeptember 9, 2014
The arrogance of too many VP's is destroying the motivation of the highly skilled people that work within the company. Too many of the top performers have left or are being driven to search out better opportunities and will be leaving the company soon. If the new CEO can get a clue she will slash and burn a significant number of over promoted middle management folks and bring upwards some of the recently acquired folks. If she fails to take drastic action and knock some sense into the management chain, the company is doomed.
Pros
very few remain.
Cons
too many to mention

Trying to find a balance
Manager of Global Technical Assurance Centers (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAAugust 30, 2014
IXIA is striving to find a balance between the two types of components they sell. Test components and Network Visibility Solutions are not the same and deserve dedicated Sales, Support, Manufacturing and Product Management representation. While individual contributors are often highly trained and dedicated, the Senior Management must find the proper balanced methodology to allow them to serve their customer's needs.
