      Pros

      Great pay, compensation and benefits.

      Cons

      Currently in a state flux as it pivots to a software and services company. This is a necessary change in culture but it's all about the execution. Time will tell.

      Pros

      good tech, good story and loyal customers, compensation is good and accelerators are a bonus. training is pleantifull and available.

      Cons

      completely internally focused. the number is the only thing that matters. management is short sighted and lacks creativity and leadership. channel program is lackluster at best.

      Pros

      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.

      Cons

      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.
