    Interview

    F5 (a newly acquired company within, which considers itself F5's future) is looking for cheapest labour with top notch skills. Technical team(head of it) not able to conclude even after taking as many interviews as they want. Interview process sucks. It never ends. Such a waste of time.

    I had multiple rounds including coding except the SVP, CEO rounds :-) I think they can add this also.
