F5 new ceo messed up with layoffs

I think the new CEO and his GMs are rethinking the layoffs now. Ever since he came in and started making changes he really messed up culture. I heard he’s too scared to do anymore layoffs because all the good people have left and issues from... —  read more

Stealth layoffs?

FFIV has let go of a number of people this week. Looks like a stealth layoff. Not surprising. They are a hardware networking company in a world going rapidly to the cloud. They've failed to build much of a security business and in their core market -... —  read more

We need to have management layoffs

Why are there so many useless managers at F5 Networks? They know so little about their jobs that when a decision needs to me made, there is nobody who can actually make it. This is one of the reasons why the company has no clear direction or... —  read more

Dictatorship in Tel Aviv Cortex Project

Today HR manager came to weekly meeting and forced us to work at night for free. This is unbelievable. With total management support. It's even worse than layoffs.

Simplicity is the key

Read this article, and I have to recommend it as a really good read. I always said that if our services lacked anything, that’s simplicity, and if JF was brought in primarily to tackle this problem, then the management scored a good point for... —  read more

No layoffs before next quarter?

I've been hearing that because of good quarterly results, there will be no layoffs at least for the duration of this quarter. I'd like to believe this is true, but it sounds suspiciously like wishful thinking to me. If layoffs were already scheduled... —  read more

This is the goal

Third round in under 12 months. Most of these people don't fit in with the plan though. Traditional network model is dead and cloud fail fast is the future. Axing some dead wood will allow F5 to get into the developer lease model where you have... —  read more

Who was responsible for deciding who gets laid off?

I'm just wondering, because from where I'm standing whoever made the choice only used a list to pick from instead of making sure to include merit in decision making. We lost some of our best people! Where's the logic in that? Why wouldn't you take... —  read more

Layoffs good ?

Layoffs are good for health of a company but like as with anything else, it is grossly misused and taken advantage of by targeting selectively as being biased. India and Guadalajara growth is good cost cutting measure, the more the merrier. Welcome... —  read more

Are layoffs done?

Are we done with the layoffs for Q3? Will there be more in Q4? Not sure if the layoff was to remove deadwood as I see many good people and entire business units being removed. —  read more

Developer lease model

Axing some dead wood will allow F5 to get into the developer lease model where you have temporary employees churn product out nonstop. Enjoy the ride! —  read more

F5 Layoffs hitting lots of people

Bloodletting today. People being escorted out continuously throughout the day. Of course they don't call it layoffs but rather 'restructuring.' My team lost 6 of 40, and this was round two in 6 months

What was the criteria of last F5 layoffs?

What was the basis of these layoffs I wonder? Performance based or based on job role. Was it only 1 group affected or was this across the company? This was asked in another thread, but nobody answered, so I was hoping bumping it would get it more... —  read more

Layoffs sure, but not the Integrity or Diversity VPs

Odd that the Director of Integrity and the Chief Integrity Officer, and the Diversity Department (yes real positions) somehow have value to be paid enormous salaries, but moderately paid tech people actively working on projects had to go. No worries!... —  read more
