I worked at Riverbed Technology full-time (more than a year)

Pros

* Free snack bar
* Free food (sometimes)
* Good people
* Good gift at Christmas time.

Cons

* Managers/Directors has lots of power (Which they misuse)
* Commute ( Not allowed to work from Sunnyvale office)
* No way to make money apart from your base salary
* Yearly appraisal are totally in manager's hand, he can screw you (which he did to me)
* Managers never let employee write the goals and objective and its on their discretion.
* Be ready for the surprises in appraisal
* Never trust your managers
* No fun at work place, People just come and work they never interact with each other.
* Never join the Pilot QA group (Bad Manager and no visibility)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

* Treat your employee with respect
* Listen to them when they raise concern
* Managers/Director : You are not always right.
