About F5 Networks Ltd

What is it like to work for F5 Networks Ltd

Personal Growth
Personal Growth

F5 have internal L&D resources available for their employees including a soft skills curriculum available for employees and managers to attend, for example four weeks of Technical training in Seattle office for all new UK-based technical employees and one week for Sales Bootcamp . The in-house soft skills training courses held in the UK are effective tools for employee development but it is impossible to calculate the investment/spend as F5's internal systems do not capture this information. The company have also introduced the Personal Development Plan for each employee. This is created in collaboration between the employee and manager to leverage strengths and give an opportunity to improve where appropriate. The PDP is targeted at individual needs and focusses on the individual's goals and where they want to develop. All of F5's managers are trained to coach/mentor their employees and their technical teams have a technical Mentor as part of the structure.

"Have a Ball" is an on-the-spot recognition programme giving employees the opportunity to send an acknowledgement or thank you to anyone at F5 they feel deserves to be recognised for their hard work and dedication Each quarter employees receive a packet of coluorful recognition cards representing each of the company values. Employees are encouraged to use one of these recognition cards when they see someone demonstrating one of the F5 values. Employees who "Throw a Ball" are then entered into a random drawing for special prizes. The "High Five" award is given to acknowledge consistent high performance, significant accomplishment and for supporting the purpose, values and objectives of F5. Winners will receive a special commemorative gift and be acknowledged at the company meeting. They will also be highlighted on the Wall of Fame in each of our major offices. "Five Star" is the highest honour you can achieve at F5. Each year, the leadership team will select up to 50 individuals who have contributed in a significant way.
