I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time (less than an year)

Pros

People are extremely friendly. Once you understand what Riverbed is about and each product, it's very easy to see why they're great and that the company has a top of the line product platform. Very good benefits. Good work life balance. The company treats you as an adult and doesn't micro manage. Lots of resources to help you grow as an employee so that you can be the best in your role as you can possibly be.

Cons

None that are too bad for now

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Would like to see more official processes in place. Ex: SFDC.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary, excellent benefits, liberal expense policy, great products that you can be excited to sell to your customers with plenty of new features that come along very regularly

    Cons

    Very arrogant culture, both among long-time technology and sales middle to upper management, questionable ethics practices when it comes to HR policies and their enforcement. Much of the "new blood" coming into sales upper management have brought in old colleagues, swapping out one "good old boy" network for another, except this new group knows less about Riverbed's culture, products, and customers, but does have the arrogance and harassment mentality that must have been high on the hiring criteria.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More thoughtful consideration to the impact on culture, employee and customer satisfaction when hiring sales and product management leadership during the transition to a larger company.
