I have been working at F5 Networks full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good benefit, used to be very good especially on insurance and etc.
Used to be a great place to work at and have work-life balance
OK Salary

Cons

very bad management recently,
asked to work over weekends,
very bad project planning and management,
some team were hired and paid very high just because of Foundry,
very hard to get promoted if you are not some one in higher management radar, aka not in the core project,

Advice to Management

listen to the engineers, please! you guys used to listening well!
don't just hire and promote your old friends from Foundry! there are many good F5 engineers as well!

    I worked at F5 Networks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The environment is very relaxed for the IT tepartment. The IT Operations Team is very tight-knit. Projects are coordinated and then handed out, but the team is small enough that your voice is very clearly heard when doing architecture work.

    Cons

    There isn't a lot of room to move up in the company. Historically, they're not great at career development for employees; you're left to your own devices there.
