Good work life balance. Great place and company to work for!

      Cons

      I don't see any cons as of now.

      Pros

      Great benefits package, wonderful people. New CEO has moved F5 inline with the new market direction after its period of stagnation.

      Cons

      Continued issues with middle management chains not on board with changes. Some departments have a lack of direction and cohesion with company strategy.

      Pros

      Good technology and great coworkers to work with. Great benefits as well.

      Cons

      Executives do NOT have a plan of developing HW. Product Development department has lost lots of talents since last year, and they’re very important talents, architect, Sr director, principal etc, and still keep losing people. There are several reasons: Executive team keeps cutting HW budget, HW engineers are not treated well (in terms of raise, RSUs). There’s no clear future HW roadmap, executives just want to make Wall Street happy, focus on SW, no HW investment. Ironically this company is surviving just because of HW chassis.

      F5 is a great place to work at!

      Pros

      1. Generally decent company communication (regular company meetings, video updates from leaders, email announcements), 2. Good comp 3. Great benefits 4. great company culture. 5. company is working hard to stay relevant, increase innovation, and is focusing on making changes for the better Granted, I haven't been here longer than 3 years like some other reviewers and I'm sure there are pockets of areas in the company that have management and gender equality issues. But, I completely disagree with reviewers giving 1 and 2 stars. F5 is a special place- there's such a great work and life balance compared to Amazon, MS, FB, Google, etc. F5 listens, and is actively working on bettering middle-management and gender equality issues.

      Cons

      Difficult to think of anything. Finance systems/processes seem behind the times.

      Not for individual contributors/very poor management

      Jan 14, 2019 - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

      Pros

      -- Great benefits: family plans for HDHP health are at no monthly cost to the employee -- Work/life balance: flexible schedule and ability to work from home -- Smart individual contributors: most of the people I work with are incredibly smart for their field and want to make improvements and take ownership

      Cons

      -- Clueless middle management: There are far too many middle managers with no experience with the teams they're managing, making it difficult for individual contributors to make any difference or own anything. -- Lots of politics: Making needed improvements will take at least a year and most of that will be trying to get answers and approvals. There are a lot of plans made leaving little time to get the work done. It takes half the year to make the plan so you only have half a year to execute. -- Management turnover: Several people have had 5+ managers in the last 5 years. When review time comes, this means you never get a full review because each time your manager hasn't had enough time with you. Which equates to very little chances of promotions or raises. --Management ego: Most manager I know have an ego that gets in the way of necessary cross-team collaboration and pressure to get everything done right now with no space to make sure you're doing things right. They want the credit to themselves and will sacrifice quality to get it. -- Sexism: If you are a woman, you will have to work at least twice as hard to prove yourself. You will have less options to advance your career and you may have to deal with sexist comments. All of this is bad news, especially for individual contributors. Unless you're ok with not advancing your career and nothing to add to your resume in exchange for some benefits and work/life balance flexibility.
