A small company that is trying to be big
Account Manager - Professional Services (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WA25 March 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 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.

Used to be Great Potential, However Executive Group Often Took Focus Away
Former Assistant Controller (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WA4 January 2013
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 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.
Pros
competitive products
Cons
horrible location, executive management, lack of responsibility and ethics
