    Pros

    I love technology and this company does hard core tech development. You are provided with all the resources to do your job at your satisfaction level. Innovation is promoted within individuals by letting them chose areas of research and design.

    There is no place for micro-management. And this trend is being pushed from senior management levels down to individual teams. Result is employees tend to take ownership and accountability, leading to a healthy culture throughout the org.

    A lot of appreciation for the work you do. Keeps individuals motivated.

    I esp. also like it here because I have a choice to work from either of their office locations.

    And not to mention, growth potentials are marvelous!

    Cons

    Additional engagement among unrelated teams at times would be nice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Product release trains can have some strict regulation to reduce maintenance/QA overhead.

    I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Responds aggressively to market/customer demands coupled with unique innovation that pushes the boundaries of what one would expect from an established technology company. The engineering community at Riverbed is very talented with vast industry experience.

    Cons

    Considers most employees disposable, not family friendly but you wouldn't expect that either from this type of company. Product portfolio doesn't make sense at times, with their recent acquisition of OpNet. Company needs to diversify more beyond Steelheads, Granite, and certainly beyond RPM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your people. A lot of people in the RPM space are very unhappy. A lot of people have left, and more will continue to leave making it even more difficult to retain RPM specialist who can continue to develop and sell the product. Do better at marketing Granite; its the next Riverbed flagship product.
