Good pay, smart people, great perks and location.

Sometimes they put the wrong person in charge. HR sided with the manager.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the turnover in your departments and consider it might be the manager, not the rank and file.

    I worked at F5 Networks full-time

    Pros

    F5 provides great benefits and people generally have good work-life balance. They are in a solid technical field with an interesting product lineup. It's one of the few companies that help put Seattle on the map in the tech world.

    Cons

    Turf wars from low-level management on up, across the entire organization which makes a very exhausting and disappointing environment.

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on the infighting and turf wars! It's going to rot the organization out from within.
