Company that has some of the best products but worst management .

TAC (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at Riverbed Technology full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood products like WAN optimizer and load balancers.

ConsI really get surprised when I see this company gets the best working place award in silicon valley. actually out of about 10 companies I have worked with in my life, this is the worst one. there are no ethics, no human values. There were days when management denied my sick leave to take my wife to hospital. There were days when I asked for help from management and they simply were not available and tried to save their seats. I will never ever think of working with same company again. In fact, I am now afraid of working with start-ups and smaller companies due to my experience with Riverbed. Happy to be with one of the multinational company who really cares about HUMAN values and helps to grow you ethically right.
later on after leaving this company couple of years back, found that I was not alone that was literally harassed like this.
I would highly recommend you to stay away from this company.

Advice to Senior Managementget rid of your top management layer, appreciate the true human value and help employee in needs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
