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

Pros

Riverbed is a very good place to work because there is a good work/life balance and the people you work with are all great people.

Cons

I don't really find any reason to not like working at Riverbed. A better 401K match would be the only thing I could ask for and even that isn't hugely important to me.

    Pros

    - Good basic salary compared to other similar jobs in the market - no requirements for extended hours or overtime - Great team of people

    Cons

    - no incentives to over-perform - Annual reviews have no reflection on your performance for the past year. - zero incentives to work weekends and public holidays to cover illness, shortages or shifts. - Low yearly bonus -> RSU's which vest over 4 years but the actual amount of RSU's awarded equate to a extremely small percentage bonus compared to year base salary. - Lower level management have no idea how to actually manage, support and develop their staff - Management perform no consultation and discussion with engineers in basic team related decisions. - Senior management and directors have a delusional view of running a support organization with no structure in terms of L2 and L3 support staff. All Escalation Engineers perform a L2 and L3 function in a flat structure. - Politics seems to be the only method to be promoted rather then hard work and performing above and beyond. - No improvement in basic pay or conditions when promoted to Senior Escalation Engineer vs a regular Escalation Engineer

    Advice to Management

    - Re-consider the support structure - Invest more time in training and career deployment - Backup and support Escalation Engineer's when customers are rude/aggressive/angry - Develop a better bonus scheme for support - Treat Escalation Engineer's with more respect

    Pros

    Dynamic company with new perspectives at all time, and embraces the philosophy of happy customers being a win to win to everyone.

    Cons

    To much stress on top of the escalation engineers, better organization and tuning needed to make the work more enjoyable.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of smiles, we should have more company activities
