    Pros

    I work at the Champaign, IL site, where we focus on QA. Riverbed has good benefits and sets a very high bar for employee hiring, and provides great benefits (medical/dental/vision/401k/ESPP) and a work environment with nice perks and a flexible management style, which definitely helps to ensure that we have a talented engineering pool.

    Cons

    Your individual contribution is expected to be high, and since we have a very high bar for engineers, some positions can often remain unfilled.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger marketing of the Steelhead product would be advisable. If I had known about and been able to see what the Steelhead can do for WAN optimization while I was a network engineer, I would have pushed my former company to buy it - but I had not heard of it!

  2. Riverbed is a collaborative, supportive work environment. Employees are encouraged to thrive and challenge themselves.
