    I have been working at F5 Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The salary and compensation is above market. You'll be doing 1/10th the work that you would do at a start up.

    Cons

    Old guard management and promotion style. The Cloud Services organization takes an 80's approach and promotes "yes men" and people who have been around rather than what people produce. Architects and Principal engineers seem to have no experience in building web applications but still set the standards for the rest of the teams. This leads to a lot of poorly built, homegrown software with no documentation. The organization is full of cut throat people who want to coast in an enterprise job. It is a toxic environment with no opportunity for career growth.

    Pros

    Good people. Fairly good benefits. Good technology, great products.

    Cons

    When pushed, you're just a number. Loyalty no longer part of the company psyche. Decisions made that affect your income dramatically in which you have zero say. Forward and free thinkers will prob be on their way out.

    Pros

    Good benefits. higher package than other companies

    Cons

    lot of politics. they say we are open culture, but they are not. decision making is made by handful of people. managers dont know anything about technical stuff going in the project, but still they will ask you to do certain things, without bothering about the pros and cons. your suggestions and feedback have no value. promotion and hikes are given to mangers blue eyed employees.
