Pros

You work with some of the brightest people in Seattle, and there's a strong culture of support and promoting work/life balance. Also, you get one of best views of the Sound in Seattle.

Cons

We're growing so fast and resources are frequently very stretched. Also related, how we add head-count could be better managed for growth. Certain teams tend to be overlooked, but their workload increases proportionately with the addition of people in other teams.

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to the teams that support some of the more visible teams. Their work and contribution frequently gets overlooked.

    Pros

    Great benefits are the number one reason to work here. 90/10 health care, decent dental and eye benefits, and good amount of time off (18 the first year then 20 up till year 5, then 25+), Beer fridays, decent off work activities.

    Cons

    Big company bureaucracy, each business group feels like separate company, not extremely family oriented (though somewhat understandable given the logistics.)

    Advice to Management

    Make sure management is doing their job! Delegation is a wonderful thing, but sometimes it feels as if certain managers (unnamed) delegate so as to lessen their work load. But they get paid more for their responsibilities so should NOT put them off on their "underlings."

    Pros

    world class group of people, F5 hires the best and you may not find a weak link if you tried.

    Cons

    can be very political in some pockets, some advancement will be based on those politics resulting in inconsistent treatment of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Whatever you're doing, it's brilliant.
