    I worked at OPNET full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance, diverse portfolio of products, many opportunities etc.

    Cons

    There are multiple management layers, and some teams work on emerging technologies while some others are relegated to maintaining legacy products on outdated code base. Do your research before joining the company.

    I worked at OPNET full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    OPNET was acquired by Riverbed Technology and effective July 1, has been fully integrated into Riverbed. OPNET was a fun place to work and in many ways operated like a small, family run business (with 700 employees.)

    Cons

    It was always 'heads down and pencil up.' Compensation was slightly on the low side but the positives far outweighed the negatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To Riverbed Management: Stop treating OPNET folks like the conquered Army.
