I have been working at F5 Networks

Pros

good benefits, good work environment, good perks, good learning experience

Cons

far away from home, salary is not as competitive as other similar companies

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think any employee should be allowed to work from home anytime they want. We can save in commute, in gas, in time help the community and be able to have a better work balance experience.

    Pros

    The people are great and are happy with what they do. They are smart but without the arrogance. There are also a wide range of technical problems to be tackled so there is bound to be something for everyone.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities appear to be limited for those interested in the more technical route. Tribal knowledge is also a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The org chart for PD has never really made sense to me.

    Current Employee - Network Support Engineer in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at F5 Networks

    Pros

    The company has some great and unusual perks, such as a message therapist who comes in Tuesday and Fridays, and a beer party Friday afternoon. There is a game room, a quiet room to go take a nap, and wonderful views of Puget Sound. The pay is good, and they give you a comfortable chair once you've been there for 6 months.

    Cons

    I find my job very stressful. I have to deal with customers when their machines don't work. Frequently, the problems are bugs in the software, sometimes user stupidity. I do telephone and E-mail support and it is hard because I have to rely on my customers to tell me what's going wrong. My work time is scheduled by computer, there is a high level of surveillance both of my phone and my E-mail. It is not much fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to migrate the viprion technology to lower end products.
