F5 Networks among nominees for best workplace in the state

F5 Networks, a Seattle tech firm with a development office in Liberty Lake, is among 80 finalists for Washington’s Best Workplaces, chosen by the Puget Sound Business Journal. The winners will be announced later this summer. The best workplace award identifies firms that have excelled in employee benefit offerings, leadership culture, and work/life balance philosophies.

For more on the awards, try this Puget Sound Business Journal summary.

Founded in 1996, F5 Networks has about 1,800 employees with offices in 30 countries, and revenue of more than $650 million in fiscal year 2009. It develops advanced hardware and software solutions to optimize Web traffic for major companies and organizations.

When we say "major," think very very big, like Microsoft, Amazon and major operators.
