    Very good place to work

    Nov 22, 2022 - Sales Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Displaying servant leadership, caring for employees, and championing social change.

    Cons

    Some acquired companies could be integrated better, but that's the case for every company I've worked at, so not necessarily unique to F5.

    Some good, some bad

    Nov 1, 2022 - Product Manager in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    1. Good technology and some smart acquisitions that have great potential. 2. Generally good intentioned and very experienced people. 3. Quarterly wellness days. 4. Good direct line level management who care about their teams.

    Cons

    1. Lack of leadership from the executive levels. They often don't understand what's happening below them or what people in their teams are actually doing. 2. Lack of left to right strategy to drive the acquisitions. 3. Very slow to get anything done with paralyzing levels of politics. 4. Popularity culture is very present at F5. 5. The human first thing was nice to make employees feel good during COVID until the company had to tighten the costs in a recession so now its back to company first.

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great culture. Great leadership focused on wellbeing of employees first. Great benefits. Competitive pay.

    Cons

    Like most companies making connections has become more difficult since covid and the flexible work environment that allows choice for fully remote, in office sometimes or fulltime, while great for some is not for everyone.

    Great culture, great people getting it done

    May 12, 2022 - Global Solutions Architect in Phoenix, AZ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The culture at F5 is one of the best I have seen in my experience of jobs. The CEO is amazing. The Global Solutions Architects in the pre-sales role assist the account teams in the field, other solutions engineers in the field and other solution architects tied to customers. We are all here to help close revenue. As a GSA, you can define your own tasks or projects in order to help the field close business. Super exciting and super challenging! Keeps you busy! Career development is DEFINITELY a plus, and management helps a TON there.

    Cons

    Typical company internal conflicts here and there, red-tape to get things done like other companies, inside struggles depending on the team in which you belong and partnering teams...but overall everyone is helping everyone on my team and the surrounding teams.
