"Was great, now becoming painful."

Current Employee - Development in Seattle, WA
Current Employee - Development in Seattle, WA

I have been working at F5 Networks full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good location
Fantastic benefits
Decent facilities
Good reputation (for now)

Cons

Unrealistic expectations from VPs to come in evenings and weekends to meet unrealistic release goals made my management, only to cut features to make the release date. This happens with every release.
Very noisy atmosphere that makes it difficult to work.

Advice to Management

Management needs to plan better and stop punishing employees for unattainable goals.
Making ALL dev employees come in on weekends to meet goals they aren't contributing towards is ridiculous.
Award system is completely unfair and arbitrary, investigate.
Middle management is ineffective and apathetic. Do not just promote employees to mgmt because of seniority, promote because of leadership and people skills.
Do NOT transition us to cubes that offer less privacy and more distractions than the current cubes. It is already difficult enough to concentrate. Sure fire way to decrease productivity.
Allow development team to work from home without penalty!
Free pizza does not make up for loss of family time.

    Pros

    I am a 7+ year employee at F5, and with every year I find the challenge of work very rewarding. The people at F5 are extremely talented, and fantastic to work with. I have recommended many past colleagues apply here at over the years.

    Cons

    Sorry, there are none. I'm really trying hard to come up with a single one, and am drawing a huge blank.
