Account Manager - Professional Services (Current Employee), Seattle, WA – March 25, 2013
If you decide to work for F5, I highly recommend taking a position on the product sales side of the house. But if your're into 95% admin work and 5% sales...then an AM position in Pro Services at F5 is for you. If you interview for a position in professional services with F5, make sure to interview your potential co-workers to find out what challenges – more... they face on a day to day basis. As of right now, three people in three months have left the pro serve team, and the remaining employees are being grinded down to the nub due to no backfilling...doing more with less=burnout. On the upside - The benefits are really good, beer friday, free coffee/soft drinks, company events, stock options, and most of the people at F5 are great. Outside of the Pro Service Inside Team, it's a good place to work. – less
Used to be Great Potential, However Executive Group Often Took Focus Away
Former Assistant Controller (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – January 4, 2013
Pros: competitive products
Cons: horrible location, executive management, lack of responsibility and ethics
I found my experience here To be rewarding in some ways, however, the in-fighting among the Executives over who is fishing off the company pier with whom and dating spats really took everyone's focus off of the business often, and this continues today primarily with the CFO and Controller. There is interest among some in Management to be advancing the – more... business and to be creative, but many are way overcompensated due to their allocation of equity compensation to themselves that they are comfortable to rest on their laurels. – less

Productive and fun place to work. Was a pleasure working with employees all over the nation, and servicing clients from all over the nation as well.

Purchasing Coordinator (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – May 9, 2012
Pros: good benefits
Cons: micro-management, favoritism to friends culture only.
This company is okay to work for, but managements still very controlling and micro-management. Management treating and favoritism to friends only. If you are not an old friend with your management, forget about working here!
