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

I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

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

    Talented colleagues, technical and professional growth opportunities, and experienced, customer-focused management lead to top great customer service and motivated engineers.

    Cons

    Cutbacks in IT support and battles for control of infrastructure are holding back the support organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT should either step up to help, or get out of the way and let the support team continue to innovate.
