Despite large growth, Engineering still works like a smaller company.

Pros

Riverbed has acquired a number of companies over the last few years, and doubled its size a couple of times. Nonetheless, engineering (usually) manages to remain dynamic and react well to changes, as one would expect of a smaller company.

Cons

There are other effects of rapid growth which can be tough - feeling disconnected from newer divisions in the company, the leaders needing time to adapt and assimilate, making the company work as a contiguous unit. These are forgivable, as long as they improve over time.

    Pros

    great benefits, great people, location

    Cons

    company getting very political and hiring some B grade players

    Advice to Management

    we need to bring back the excitement that we used to have around here. we need to make the hard decisions vs being to nice to other execs to protect their feelings.
