I have been working at F5 Networks full-time
RSU grants on joining and during annual reviews, annual salary increments, quarterly bonus, very competitive salaries, very smart architects, seasoned professionals all around
some very long serving employees aren't contributing as much as they think or as they are valued
I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at F5 Networks (Seattle, WA (US)) in August-2013.
Typical tech company 4-hour intensive. Back to back 1-on-1 interviews with each of the team members. I met with each member of the team, and they focused on their particular area of interest. The uber-techs on the team made sure I had basic knowledge of networking principles, including the TCP/IP stack. Since my role on the team was mostly focused on communications, each asked me to tell a story about how I had addressed communicating complex technical topics to non-technical audiences in the past. My role was an odd one, and the company invented the title "Knowledge Engineer" for me, since I didn't really fit into any of their existing job titles.
During conversations with the hiring manager, the compensation range was discussed, as well as the benefits package. So when the offer came in, the manager explained clearly and in detail why he chose that number, what it meant for my future earning potential at the company, and I agreed with his decision and the offer. Simple, easy, and foreshadowed an excellent working relationship with my manager that continued throughout my employment there.
