Current Employee - NSE in Chertsey, England (UK)

I have been working at F5 Networks full-time (more than an year)

Pros

-nice technology and opportunity to learn a lot
-chance to see a company that is doing well finally
-many interesting people to meet
-if you can play politic you can definitely success there
-good benefits

Cons

-they don't focus on employees. they don't care if you stay with them or not
-overall communication with management is terrible. There are some 1st level mgmt that are fine but majority of them are only interested in their own carrier and bonuses
-commuting to chertsay is really bad
-there are really nice people who work there but because work balance is bad you don't have a chance to socialize
-stats driven environment; a lot of politic
-came to Glassdoor because I'm looking for a new job. seeing so many high positive review about the company I'm very suspicious that many of these can be fakes

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-listen to your employees
-stats are not the only way to evaluate employee; when they speak listen to them instead of criticize
-it is nice to see that a company grows and have money but you are not sharing this with everyone

    Pros

    Strong products, good training, smart people, good pay and benefits, senior management seems to know what they are doing, fairly easy to move between jobs within the company.

    Oh, and it is based in Seattle. If you do not mind a bit of rain, this is one of the best places in the world to live.

    Cons

    Well, in the end, it is still a job. You do have to show up and get the job done..
