I have been working at F5 Networks

Pros

Great benefits are the number one reason to work here. 90/10 health care, decent dental and eye benefits, and good amount of time off (18 the first year then 20 up till year 5, then 25+), Beer fridays, decent off work activities.

Cons

Big company bureaucracy, each business group feels like separate company, not extremely family oriented (though somewhat understandable given the logistics.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure management is doing their job! Delegation is a wonderful thing, but sometimes it feels as if certain managers (unnamed) delegate so as to lessen their work load. But they get paid more for their responsibilities so should NOT put them off on their "underlings."

    Pros

    world class group of people, F5 hires the best and you may not find a weak link if you tried.

    Cons

    can be very political in some pockets, some advancement will be based on those politics resulting in inconsistent treatment of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Whatever you're doing, it's brilliant.

    Pros

    great technology and people. Awesome benefits and culture that make this an ideal place to work within the high tech sector.

    Cons

    As a inside sales rep you will not have many options for career advancement unless you want to move out of state. They are fairly good about promoting from within however.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    great job and success to the management teams. This is probably one of the best places I have worked. Would highly recommend.
