    I worked at Riverbed Technology as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The employee benefits and the relaxed California culture make coming to work easy. I was only an intern that worked for them over one summer, but I definitely had a great time showing up everyday.

    Cons

    As an intern I did not face many challenges throughout the day. I would say finding a place to live for two months while working there was the most challenging task I faced.

    Senior Management in the IT Dept was terrible for several years - New blood now has a chance to right the ship

    I worked at Riverbed Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many high quality individuals throughout the company in different departments and at all levels.

    Cons

    The top three in charge of the IT dept stifled growth by instilling fear as a means to drive results. One in particular with a proud military background was probably the worst but was clearly convinced that such scare tactics were beneficial, all the while employees were leaving the company left and right. These top level "leaders" of the dept repeatedly made poor decisions, alienated business partners and employees alike, executed highly impacting mistakes, and spent more time and effort covering up such mistakes rather than take ownership and capture learning experiences. Great case study in how incompetence destroys an organization from the inside out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify your own shortcomings and take action to grow rather than deceive.
