I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time (more than an year)

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 (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.

    Pros

    Amazing technology that WORKS!
    Incredible engineering resources
    Convenient commuting location in SF
    Access to Clevels even though the company is 1b
    Culture of a startup, tier one company!
    ...great halloween..xmas parties..ect...too many more to list.

    Commerical Sales is a great place to call home rather you are an ISR or Sales Exec. The organization is ran by the best VP I have ever worked for. I trust these people and the in turn trust me as a professional. Its been a great place to cal home after the great recession!

    Ive been promoted several times in the last year. Sticking through the tough"er" times pays off!

    Cons

    Companies infrastructure is bolted on (dispersed systems)
    2013 has had a few struggles with acquisition integration, account segmentation
    Too many good people leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down on splitting territories. Focus on setting sales people up for success at all levels of the company!
