'People's Picks' Workplace Awards Single Out F5 Networks

Seattle Times and Seattle Post-Intelligencer recognize company for culture, perks, and more
F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, today announced that it was voted a winner in four categories during the recently concluded People's Picks awards. Sponsored by NWjobs, the online job listing service of the Seattle Times and Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the contest invited site visitors to vote on the best employers in the Puget Sound area, in more than 20 unique categories. F5 Networks was selected as one of the region's top companies in four categories: Best large corporation, Best view, Best commute program, and Company with most unusual perks.

In an article announcing the awards, F5 employees praised the company for its "great culture and career potential," and also raved about the stunning views of the Puget Sound and Mount Rainier from offices on the Elliott Bay waterfront. The company's commute program also was a top vote getter: F5 Networks offers a transportation stipend for eco-friendly commuters, including carpoolers, and provides locker rooms with showers for those wishing to bike or jog to the office. In the 'perks' category, F5 drew compliments for providing free food and beverages at its weekly 'Beer Friday' gathering.

"It's clear from these awards that our employees see F5 as an outstanding place to work," said Laurie Likai, F5's Director of Human Resources. "We appreciate being highlighted as one of the region's best employers, and are gratified that our workforce is eager to share all the advantages F5 has to offer."

As an award winner, F5 Networks is currently featured on each NWjobs People's Picks category page. (All People's Pick honorees can be found by selecting the categories found at http://marketplace.nwsource.com/job/peoplespicks/2006/.) In addition, the company will have a special winner's icon added to its job postings listed in the NWjobs database for one year.
