      Lol did you just edit your older comment from "what makes you think I'm still there?" to "do you own the company?".

      I pity your lame come back.

      You can lol as much as you want.

      With constant layoffs, you must be pretty proud of the culture at F5.

      Tbh, I'm proud of the culture at F5. I wouldn't be still here otherwise.

      And, yes, in the last 5 years having three layoffs can definitely be considered as constant layoffs.

    SF location is much more diverse in it's portfolio, and there are a number of critical Enterprise teams located there. That location is doubling it's headcount this year, so it's doing just fine. Plus it's a trophy office for the company being able to say it's a tech company.

      Do you consider C1 a tech company?

  • I'm sorry for those folks, but honestly 160 jobs can easily be absorbed by other tech conpanies in Seattle.

    Leaving Seattle was a function of leaving the primary roboinvesting business. SF has several major functions that are only growing in scope so I think it will only get larger.

    We decided to leave the robo advisor biz, unfortunate IMO but I get biz prioritization needs

    What we were told yesterday is that this was a geography decision rather than a business decision. Is it true that C1 Investing is going away?
