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

Pros

If you like chaos and zero accountability, zero career expectations and unkept promises, high management turnover, poorly performing stock options and perpetual takeover rumors... This place is for you!

Cons

Zero upward mobility, lowball salary with no way of doing anything about it, underperform over perform all the same rewards. Be prepared to rewind your career while your manager is underperforming, putting the pressure to manage the gap upward with false or no pretense for reward.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actively retain your best people by offering some kind of career next hop, demonstrate something that represents opportunity/hope, reason to stay, end the churn cycle. Chop the fat, there are tons of ineffective people being propped up by a few hardcore contributors.

    Pros

    Riverbed Technology has always been a place to work, where you want to give more than your best. Just a great place to work.

    Cons

    The new Senior Management is trying to bring up the stock price, with negative changes to the work place. Good talent is leaving, while others looking around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are losing the Riverbed magic. The approach of you are free to leave, if you do not like it , was never Riverbed.
