I have been working at F5 Networks full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Upper management has good direction and provides ample communication to employees. Support organizations (IT, payroll, HR) are all very responsive.

Cons

Middle management often lacks communication, too many tools and resources for getting job done. Should be consolidated and kept up to date.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. F5 hires the best and the brightest, and most people are very proud to here. There's are really sense of team and community here. The company is strong and the executives are trustworthy. Last, the benefits are good and the perks even better.

    Cons

    There are some growing pains in some departments. Workload has increased dramatically, but resources haven't increased with that. Also, I think salaries for non-technical positions are not on par with the market.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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.
