Getting worse day after day

I have been working at F5 Networks full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood benefit, used to be very good especially on insurance and etc.
Used to be a great place to work at and have work-life balance
OK Salary

Consvery bad management recently,
asked to work over weekends,
very bad project planning and management,
some team were hired and paid very high just because of Foundry,
very hard to get promoted if you are not some one in higher management radar, aka not in the core project,

Advice to Senior Managementlisten to the engineers, please! you guys used to listening well!
don't just hire and promote your old friends from Foundry! there are many good F5 engineers as well!
