Good place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

Pros-Wonderfully fair life/work balance
-Great benefits
-Fantastic salary and bonuses
-Smart people

Cons-Very poor leadership in middle management... loads of apathy and laziness
-Very inconsistent treatment/policies from dept to dept and even from person to person
-Poor release stratagies that never change and seem to be driven mostly by mgmt bonus

Advice to Senior ManagementThe new training for management is great, but let's get real, are they using these tools? I love F5, but I abhore the inconsistent treatment of departments and people and the apathetic managers who are not empowering their employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
