Pros

Company provides best of breed products loved by both company employes and customers alike. Very similar look and feel to Cisco 15 years ago when employee wealth creation and commitment to excellence was the order of the day. There is a real need for the products they bring to the market and they do it better than anyone else.

Cons

None at this time worth mentioning

Advice to Management

Do NOT let the culture die and ensure new hires do not dilute it.

    Pros

    Open and Encouraging work environment Talented group of young folks including engineering managers. Apple products, flex work hours, free food, drinks and usual tech company goodness Positive interaction with HR and lawyers (read immigration) New in 2013 - Riverbed The Brand Office in San Francisco!

    Cons

    Extremely niche and proprietary technology Company vision is focussed towards consolidation and acquisitions. No great innovation happening here anymore. Old school mentality. Managers comfy in their job. Not outwardly ambitious (which will affect you as an engineer) and they gossip a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Noticed a lot of lateral hires especially into management roles. Promote from within!
