I worked at Riverbed Technology

Pros

Great place to work, great products, fine sales management. The company is tracking to excellence and should become more than just WAN optimization by leveraging their current IP into other areas.

Cons

Public company. Some senior leadership is not as strong as would be expected or hoped for...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Existing product set is fantastic, but the company needs a new product set...

    Pros

    Great benefits and nice to be downtown.
    If you're lucky enough to be in a good department, you can perform well but don't expect to grow your career.

    Cons

    The company drives their best talent out. If you don't tow the party line you will not be successful.
    Some departments are gossip pools and if you're not in the clique you're a bad worker
    Very political organization, it's not about your work. It's about kissing ass

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    value your employee assets. Get rid of poor performers. Provide feedback more than once a year.
    LISTEN to your team, don't ignore them.

    I have been working at Riverbed Technology

    Pros

    Excellent, very smart people. Working on plenty of great ideas and cool products. Despite company size, this place still feels like one big family.

    Cons

    sometimes no clear focus of future products, information doesn't always disseminate through the ranks (as is common with large companies), benefits could be improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to propagate strategy and vision in a clearer way through the ranks, also improve feedback system.
