Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – 10 September 2017
You can be fired anytime at F5 even without any indication. It doesn't matter how good you are in terms of performance. They don't value your effort and hard work done by you. New CEO has changed the culture and F5 is no longer the best employer.
slow down in core business, new CEO doesn't know what he is doing
Sr. Manager Data Governance (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – 31 August 2017
The old guard is changing and I think the culture will go through some tough transitions. I really liked a lot of the people there. Seemed to be a common theme, that everyone wanted to get along well with others. Still, some management ranks were difficult to influence and could easily ignore you. Tough to get a project off the ground or drive change.
AngularJS Software Developer III (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – 27 June 2017
They were getting things together and switching from waterfall to agile/scrum when I came. The project went really well, I would have stayed longer. There was a bit of turnover on the project which caused it to stall prior to me starting work.
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Louisville, CO – 19 June 2017
Interesting place to work that is willing to take risks with it culture and technology. F5 is actively working to transform itself from a hardware based networking company to a software and services network company.
Best in Breed Application Delevery Networking Company
F5 Global Accounts Technology Sales (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – 25 May 2017
Fantastic company! I had the privilege to work for them in the early stages after the company's inception. My colleagues were some of the most intelligent, savvy and articulate individuals I've ever worked with. It's what has absolutely led to F5's wildly successful run, as the premiere ADN/Load Balancing company worldwide. Working for F5 and the colleagues who became my friends, prepared me for great success, both professionally and personally!
Site IT Manager (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – 19 May 2017
Great place to work. Great benefits and pay. Good work environment. I don't know what else I can say to add up to 150 characters. I enjoyed working there and would work there again if the opportunity presented itself.
Good pay, good benefits, food/beer Fridays after hours, holidays parties, good times overall.
Supply Chain Manager (Former Employee) – Liberty Lake, WA/ Seattle WA – 8 July 2016
Not recommended to individuals who have not worked in the Software networking environment.
Disclosure with onboarding was many of the current employers came from other networking, software developers ... where narcissistic personalities is the norm and management is working to make the change for a better culture but it is slow to change.
Great place to intern with lots of opportunities for learning
Graduate Technical Intern (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – 7 July 2016
I had a great experience in F5. It was a good place to intern at and I got to learn a lot from my seniors. The work culture and my teammates put me at ease from day one. My mentors and seniors guided me well in performing my responsibilities better. A great place to work at!
Productive, fun and challenging workplace! Great people to work with and learning never stops!
Network Support Engineer II (Former Employee) – Singapore – 6 June 2016
Productive, fun and challenging workplace! Great people to work with and learning never stops! Management is supportive of your career. The bonus and other perks are decent. But it is easily among the best places I have worked.
FPGA Verification Engineer Intern (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – 17 February 2016
Workload was what you expect out of an ideal job. I moved into the new building as soon as I started, so I got the most benefits out of the company's assets, which were well above average. The only complaint I have is that coworkers in other parts of the company will neglect to tell you situations that are important and relevant to you. My personal example is that I was working an internship at F5 Networks, and I was given a chance to move up to a full-time position. I brought up the idea of a conversion to full-time about two months after I was hired, as that was the timeframe that they promised me the conversion. However, the conversion was repeatedly delayed, and eventually the end of my internship came about, still with no word on my conversion.
If you work an internship at F5 Networks, be careful about this happening to you. Looking out for another job while there is absolutely essential if you're an intern there.
Sr. Principal Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – 20 November 2015
Great benefits, in a great industry that's fast paced and exciting to work in. Culture is incredibly agile and flexible, they'll put your skills to good use and get you working on something important and incredibly meaningful. I didn't know what F5 was when I joined. But I joined, and it has been a great (15+ year) career.
Network Support Engineer II (Unix) (Current Employee) – Spokane – 10 September 2015
Typical Day: 2 hours of phone time waiting for customers to call in for new cases. Great Pay Benefits are great Overtime is encouraged and paid Stress is high. Support Managers have no direction 6 hours of cases sent to your group. You have to take cases even if you are over loaded Moral is sinking in the Support ranks. This job is designed for people that conducted phone support previously in their careers.
Great Pay and Benefits, Overtime
