    Great company!

    Jul 2, 2008 - Software Engineer III in Seattle, WA

    Pros

    The people are great and are happy with what they do. They are smart but without the arrogance. There are also a wide range of technical problems to be tackled so there is bound to be something for everyone.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities appear to be limited for those interested in the more technical route. Tribal knowledge is also a problem.

    Nothing I can think so far. Career development can be challenging in certain departments

    Pros

    F5 has some of the best people you will ever work with. They also have done a gr eat job on providing good benefits and compensation. Most departments do a great job of hiring good people that work well with others.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours are crazy long... and this is happening more and more. We tend to act like a startup, which makes the culture fun, but makes it hard to do business in a company of over 4000 people.

    Pros

    Great organization with a high interest in growth and bringing in good people.

    Great people, great pay, great company.

    Pros

    First is the people and their knowledge. There are a lot of great and intelligent people at F5. Next is the desire to help others grow into their goals. Most companies want your goals to mimic the company's need du-jour, F5 figures out how to maximize your strengths. Salary and benefits are some of the best out there.

    Cons

    Communication at the bottom level of management can be lacking, based upon the team that you're on, but at the top level it is stellar. Sometimes forward momentum seems to get slogged in growing bureaucracy, but that's a growing pains symptom.

    Current Employee

    Pros

    Great people who are very smart and think out of the box. The technology (TMOS) rocks!! Hard work and teamwork is valued! You pushed to think out of the box and allowed to speak your mind.

    Cons

    Can be pigeon holed into one role. Management team is becoming very political. Influx of new hires recently who would never have been hired a few years ago.
