The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at F5

Interview

The overall impression is quite disappointing. The recruiter didn't even took the time after i went through to 3 interviews to communicate the results or feedback (negative I presume) after the technical interview. Management and techinical people seems to live in different worlds and seperate from any shared information. Did 1st interview with management which was ok, i had still some question, like who is the team, which project i will work on. I thought the technical interview would give me clarity, but Principal engineer i spoke, didn't know either which team/project I should work on. The principal engineer asked me to do coding session(there was on preparation link or video), which was not really clear announced in mails, from a Principal/Senior person, I would expect more a system design and high-level interview, but it was the "usual" college coding games interview which most of time , Senior people have difficulty to answer because nobody use them in real life and junior people excells Disappointing from the technical interview to the recruiter, I diddn't felt my experience was valued. Sad that is always the tipical way of filtering people. I would not reccomend The manager I spoke with allthough was kind and with experience

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at F5 (Seattle, WA) in Oct 2022

Interview

Recruiter reached out to me via email and offered an interview. I did the technical interview and the engineer interviewing me was impressed. However, I received an email a week later saying that, although the feedback about me was very positive, they did not have enough spaces for me to continue in the process.

It was a technical interview asking questions on networking, experience in their products. And then a round for cultural fit. And finally the light managerial round to assess if my understanding of the role is correct

I interviewed at F5

Interview

First one with HR - very friendly chat The second one was with 2 employees - One of them was REALLY rude and he was acting like he is taking me as a joke, the other one was really helpful but it felt so overwhelming with the other one I couldn't continue with the interview. I get into A LOT OF interviews before and it was the first one like this. Not sad or anything, I was just angry after the interview.
