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

Pros

I enjoy the productive and friendly environment at F5. The level of cooperation, both intra- and inter- team, is really outstanding. While the company is growing rapidly, there is still a sense of making an impact as an individual. For many, seeing the results of the work well done helps deriving a great level of satisfaction. The compensation is competitive, the growth opportunities are plenty, the work environment is comfortable (larger working spaces, remote access, etc.) and there is a variaty of nice perks available (depending on the location). No wonder many people stick with the company for very long time.

Cons

Some growth pain does shows up, but that is a good problem to have. The products are large and complex, which may represent a significant challenge for the new employees. The flip side of this is that the company encourages the employees to stay longer; obviously, the management understands the cost of bringing the replacement up to speed...

    Pros

    F5 has a great campus and you work with very bright and talented people. The fact that there are as many 15+ year employees at a 18 year old company is telling in itself. Great challenging and fulfilling work with great compensation and benefits don't hurt either. From the great health benefits, to the employee recognition program, to the Friday happy hours, F5 treats the employees well and it shows.

    Cons

    There are some growing pains from going from a small to medium/large company but the management is doing a fair job at handling it while maintaining the "small company" culture.

    I have been working at F5 Networks full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good managers and coworkers. Friendly culture within the company that encourages people to work with each other instead of competing against each other. Good product and technology in the ADC product space. Flexible working schedule and reasonable work load suitable for many middle age tech workers. Turn over ratio relatively low among high tech companies.

    Cons

    Multiple teams across different geographical locations make it harder to management (F5 is still a medium size development house). Different teams working on a single product (BIG/IP) make it harder and harder to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunties for inside people to move up the management ladder instead of mostly hiring management from outside.
