I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Interesting work, talented team, good benefits, reasonable management, appropriately aggressive and accessible.

Cons

I actually have no complaints so far. Riverbed is a relatively young company, a pioneer in a nascent industry (WAN optimization) which makes it subject to the winds of technological change. So far the management has kept its sails positioned well, but by its nature there is risk. Still, a good place to be for the adventurous.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Guard the great culture that you have established.

    Pros

    Exciting place to work with a great culture. It's great to see so many smart people pulling in one direction to get the job done.

    Cons

    Business travel involving flights over 8 hours should qualify for business class upgrades.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please help maintain the culture. I think you guys got it right and I hope we don't stray as we get bigger.

    Better managed and by far a better-designed product than in 6 or so Silicon Valley companies I have worked before.

    Current Employee - Engineering in Sunnyvale, CA

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

    Pros

    Data-based decision making (most of the time), flexible IT management allowing engineers to configure their work environment, reasonable planning and avoidance of crunch times.

    Cons

    We are becoming a big company...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have carefully designed our products to serve the needs of our customers. Now--because we are becoming a big company and informal adjustment between the like-minded co-workers is not enough--we need equally carefully design our company to serve the work needs of those, who serve our company's customers. Sure, there is a big difference in what works when designing an electronic appliance and a socio-technical system, but the latter can be done and can be done well.
