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

Pros

Upper management has good direction and provides ample communication to employees. Support organizations (IT, payroll, HR) are all very responsive.

Cons

Middle management often lacks communication, too many tools and resources for getting job done. Should be consolidated and kept up to date.

    I have been working at F5 Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Leader in ADC market with a clear vision of expansion into other markets (security, firewall, cloud).
    There is still a startup mood at F5.
    Good salary, great people at work.
    Good medical insurance + flex-plan + ESPP.

    Cons

    San Jose office is boring. Seattle is better. Tel Aviv office is good. Tomsk office is the best.
    There is no culture at F5. No hackathons, no beer parties, no pet projects.
    Bad communication between different teams.
    Micromanagement.
    Lots of hiring recently which bloated once a small company. Some junk hires.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees - they have great ideas. Not all ideas should come from PMs, some engineers are better than PMs in identifying the vision.

    I have been working at F5 Networks full-time

    Pros

    Stocks are doing great
    Kitchen stocked up with snacks once in 2 weeks I guess
    Benefits are good

    Cons

    Used to be a great company. Work culture is very bad. Management grows worse day by day. Setting unachievable goals and forcing employees to show up on weekends and holidays for the sake of showing up but not really concerned about people being productive. Management does not hear you. Have never seen such a bad work culture in my prior experiences

    Advice to Management

    Let employees set the goals. be little flexible which will lead to more productivity
