    I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Riverbed is not political at all. The environment is very open and collaborative. The ESPP plan has a generous lock period. The game room and kitchens at HQ allow for down time. There are many smart and motivated employees to here. There is a lot of upside potential with stock options. I appreciate the financial stability of Riverbed in these uncertain economic times.

    Cons

    Stock options are not as generous at lower levels of management. If more of the repurchased shares could be allocated to non-executives that would be a great motivator.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a larger number of RSU's for the lower-to-mid level employees.


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

    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 Management

    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.
