    Paid way too much for OPNET and then wrecked OPNET

    I worked at Riverbed Technology

    Pros

    Channel focus; marketing savvy; demand creation

    Cons

    Much more complicated, layered and "political" than OPNET, whom they purchased for $1B and then set about dragging OPNET into the Riverbed culture.

    Petty politics are starting to rule the day.

    I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Riverbed has some of the best products in the industry and great innovation. It's easy to get excited talking to friends and customers about the products and solutions. The benefits are first class.

    Cons

    As the company grows, people who can't appreciate the culture and came from much larger organizations are trying to transform Riverbed into the monolithic organizations they left to join Riverbed. This is coming from someone who left one of those large companies. People are starting to get caught up in a heavily political environment, and like no other time in my career, I don't feel like my management "has my back".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the egos of your senior leaders in check (VP/SVP, both new and old) - they are quick to dismiss customers, partners, and employees' opinions.
