    Pros

    I think this is the best company I've worked for. The people are super friendly and helpful. I personally didn't experience much in the world of politics that exist at many other orgs, everyone was always very nice to me. We have a fantastic CEO and I really enjoyed working with my manager.

    Cons

    Very fast paced which is good but sometimes we don't move at the same speed. Too much data- this creates a lot of confusion for sales teams and amount of time spent in resolving data related queries takes away from the strategic planning aspect.

    world class products, well respected CEO

    complacent, no where in Cloud and seem to feel the market will come to them without making a sustained effort to change the perception about being a ADC business

    Pros

    Great people, good products, good partner landscape, good benefits

    Cons

    Under-resourced if you're not in sales, starting to get 'large corporate' feel - and not in a good way. pressurized, sometimes uncompromising, emergence of 'busy' people looking for ways to score points with senior management whilst undermining colleagues and creating an overall unpleasant culture of success at 'all costs'. People taking credit and aligning with other peoples work and then doing a full 360 back when the project isn't a success. Because of low resource, EMEA heads do lots of business travel - they put you in cattle class for long-haul (no exceptions) and insist that you fly easyjet, ryanair and low cost airlines from ridiculous airports at ridiculous times in order to save costs which compounds your misery.

    I worked at F5 Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement, that’s really it

    Cons

    Racist Culture, rude salespeople, horrible HR. I resigned properly with 2 weeks notice and as an employee at the time with perfect reviews I was asked to leave a little earlier to not cross the sales quarters. This to me is rude and I never thought of it as much until a recent coworker at the much better, larger and well known tech I work for pointed it out to me. This, I did notice. I was referred for a position on a much better team and I was told I was an asset and they needed me to stay on the team I was on. I seen other Caucasian people with the same tenure as me (starting the exact same day) moving on to other depts. Please work on your issues, you know what they are. I’m so glad I made the decision to move on but I need this to be known.

    I worked at F5 Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work life balance, good people, good benefits overall, 401k match.

    Cons

    High turnover in the management ranks in the last few years. New management appears, announces new ideas, then disappears soon after. Product management has disappeared. The core hardware market is declining and there is no clear strategy forward. Technology is old. Many good sales, technology and marketing people have left.
