Work place is improving slowly and I'm hopefully they'll allow developers to work from home more frequently.

    Pros

    First is the people and their knowledge. There are a lot of great and intelligent people at F5. Next is the desire to help others grow into their goals. Most companies want your goals to mimic the company's need du-jour, F5 figures out how to maximize your strengths. Salary and benefits are some of the best out there.

    Cons

    Communication at the bottom level of management can be lacking, based upon the team that you're on, but at the top level it is stellar.
    Sometimes forward momentum seems to get slogged in growing bureaucracy, but that's a growing pains symptom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be held back on a good idea because one area has thrown up roadblocks. Keep moving forward, we own the market, don't give that up. Other than that occasional issue, you're doing an astounding job, thanks!

    Pros

    They have great benefits and pay 100% of employees health coverage. There is a lot of vacation time which is very nice to have. You can move around the company and try other jobs after you have been here for a year. If you move internally, it is a great way to get your foot in the door if you don't have experience. Kind of an internal training program.

    Cons

    You work a lot. There is some disorganization which requires you to spend your time fixing it. There are mixed messages through upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First, you didn't have enough processes. Now, you have too many. Hire a professional to do program management. Someone with years of experience. Please.
