I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The folks that work in engineering are AMAZINGLY talented. Very bright, easy to work with and I have never had any issues working with them due to personality, language barriers, etc. My previous experience has been quite a doozy and Riverbed is a refreshing change. Our team is treated very similar to a start up, so we work at a very quick pace and sometimes the deadlines are daunting, yet I've seen growth in my knowledge and understanding of systems as a whole. In general, this place is EXCELLENT and I would recommend it to any of my friends/colleagues that are looking for a change.

Cons

Well.. It's treated like a start up, so it's a lot of work. But, you get compensated fairly and also have *some* breathing room, so that's nice.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue doing what you're doing. It's working.. :)

    Pros

    The company has a fantastic reputation in the market for the technology and consistently does what is right for their customers.

    Cons

    The only negative I can think of from my experience relates to being a remote / work from home employee. My on-boarding process was a bit of a "learn as you go" scenario. I believe that was due to a couple factors: 1- need to get up and running quickly with a new business unit, 2- our business unit is still finding its way.

    Pros

    Great culture, growing fast, no debt. Everyone is willing to step up and help.

    Cons

    Adjustment working from home in a city where there is no local office (have worked from home before, but always had the option to go in). All employees are treated like insiders for stock selling/buying purposes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be too quick to add a bunch of management layers.
