    I have been working at Riverbed Technology as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good Name in the industry.

    Cons

    -Horrible management that lies to you about pay raises after 3 month reviews. Don't believe anything this company says to you about performance reviews and bonuses. I've spoken with multiple contractors that have said the same thing about the way this organization lies to their people.
    -Lies told to all contractors about job growth, increase in responsibility, and visibility within the organization.
    -Major attrition in HR. Nobody stays past 6 months because there is no career path at Riverbed in HR.
    -Lack of response in communication from management. You can write repeadeted emails to your manager about action items discussed in past meetings, but if he doesn't feel your email is important, he will just ignore you and act like nothing ever happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason that no one stays in your recruiting organization after 5-6 months in R & D...and it isn't the contractors. Try communicating with your employees and holding yourself accountable
