    I have been working at F5 Networks full-time


    F5 is not like other corporates. Although F5 is considered a 'big' company with 4500+ employees, the company treats their employees as if it was a startup of 20 people.
    F5 is an industry leader and hardly ever lays off people. if you're looking for job security this is the place. processes are well defined and executed.
    The work-life balance is overall very pleasing in F5.


    Not enough innovation and employees development plans / career opportunities. company needs to be more innovative to keep up with the industry otherwise it will be left behind.

    Negative Experience


    The first phase was a phone interview with a tech person. The person on the phone was pretty aggressive/curt. I got the feeling that the working environment would be unnecessarily stressful because of the atmosphere. They were going to bring me on-site for more testing, but I opted out of the interview process after that.
