I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

The technology, the problems are all extremely challenging. The camaraderie is great, and office politics is minimal. Work life balance is superb, and the free snacks, espresso, etc. is great.

Cons

It can be hard to advance within the organization due to so many young members and relatively low turn-over (which, I guess is a good thing). Also, integrating many different organizations has been painful at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow for more cross-team and cross-product integration roles, so the responsibility to integrating multiple solutions into new products is properly rewarded.

    I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people, team-work, good management style, people-centered, good compensation package.

    Cons

    Difficult for promotions, transition from being a startup to a big company (several leads have left in the past few months).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify the message on why leads are leaving, this creates an uncomfortable atmosphere on people staying.
