Pros

Riverbed is an evolving company that is constantly looking for new and innovative solutions to emerging network and application performance problems. Individuals are given opportunity to meet these needs and experience personal and professional growth.

Cons

Throughout Riverbed's history we've grown very rapidly which can result in continual growing pains as we try to adapt our processes to support a larger organization while still maintaining our culture of innovation, collaboration, and rapid movement.

    Pros

    Riverbed values my opinions and expertise and provides me a flexible work environment.

    Cons

    When the headquarters moves, it will be further away from my commute options and will increase time spent communting by 4 hours per month.

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

    Pros

    Direct management is supportive, focus and direction are mostly aligned with company goals

    Cons

    Growing pains of being multi-product company are having a toll on product management focus and senior lead strategy direction. Need cohesive sales and partner alignment against revised product strategy otherwise will not be able to sell balanced portfolio to market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and be more open and communicate ongoing changes/information with employees, lots of "behind closed doors" information which gets disseminated via hearsay (which suggests management isn't being totally forthcoming which could lead to doubt/insecurity/mistrust).
