I worked at Ixia full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

cutting edge technologies
decent benefits
nice facilities

Cons

very destructive work environment
permanent state of emergency
death march is the standard way of getting things done
artificially created internal competition destroys the spirit
guaranteed burnout after few years

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Perhaps honesty is better long term strategy than trying to play people against each other. Competition should come from the outside, not inside.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
