Featured Review

I worked at Blue Coat Systems

Pros

I liked working here, free food/beverages.. good starting salary and friendly people all around. I liked the culture and work

Cons

Nothing I like to change

Former Intern - Software Engineer(Internship)

I worked at F5 Networks for less than a year

Pros

Fantastic work-life balance and a very nurturing environment for anybody looking to apply.

Cons

Honestly, there were extremely few cons. I suppose the onboarding was slightly out of date, but it wasn't too tedious to get through.
