I have been working at F5 Networks

Pros

Great company, great product, great reputation, great people, quality is job #1

Cons

Seattle, WA headquarters (beautiful but the depressing pacfic northwest), too many products - need to focus on a few good things and really take it to the next level, that's it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None, very fair company. Before people criticize, think about F5 as compared to other companies you have worked for. Think about what you have in this economy. Thrifty is good!

    Pros

    F5 is a leader in it's market space. Really smart people, great place to learn about the technology and industry. People are friendly and there is a genuine willingness to help one an other.

    Cons

    Engineering is driven company, which is not necessary a bad thing. Lack of structure and processes in the marketing organization. Unless you work 24/7 you have little chance is changing the direction of the products you supposedly manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved in how the company is run and small people keeping you at the top;)

    I worked at F5 Networks

    Pros

    great brand, lots of recognition, and good overall benefits. There aren't many companies around that have that combination in the area

    Cons

    can be a little maniacal at times, often times little rhyme or reason when it comes to promotions other than you made the club or not

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you may be listening but sometimes you gotta prove it! Often times it seems like all you hear are the same guys and guys when there are others that want and can contribute
