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!

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
missed lunches, not included in other F5 activities.
Network Support Engineer (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – 19 July 2015
When I interviewed, my future boss said "we are not a sweat shop." For a decent while, that was true, but by the time I left, they were, and management - particularly the VP - did not appear to be grateful for the job we were doing.
The VP of Global Services at the time said, "NSEs are like hamburger" (with hand massaging motion), which tanked morale when it got around. This was during the tech crash and Support was the only part of the company actually making money. o O
They spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on training when that money could have been used to put two more desperately needed bodies on the phones.
All in all this was one of the most highly trained and capable front line support staffs I've served with. It's a shame they weren't seen for the value they brought to customers.
got my wings in networking
upper management attitude toward support staff. Shoulda got my CCNA
There's a reason they're the Best Place to Work in Seattle

The company was wonderful and there were so many great people that helped it grow so fast in such a short time. In my particular group there was a lot of turnover due to management not understanding the segment.
