Great people, great pay, great company.

Architect (Current Employee)

ProsFirst is the people and their knowledge. There are a lot of great and intelligent people at F5. Next is the desire to help others grow into their goals. Most companies want your goals to mimic the company's need du-jour, F5 figures out how to maximize your strengths. Salary and benefits are some of the best out there.

ConsCommunication at the bottom level of management can be lacking, based upon the team that you're on, but at the top level it is stellar.
Sometimes forward momentum seems to get slogged in growing bureaucracy, but that's a growing pains symptom.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be held back on a good idea because one area has thrown up roadblocks. Keep moving forward, we own the market, don't give that up. Other than that occasional issue, you're doing an astounding job, thanks!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
