    I have been working at OPNET full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance, casual dress code, good benefits.

    Cons

    Extreme micro-management prior to Riverbed acquisition. Very unorganized post acquisition, though this will most likely pass when the integration is finished.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I have been working at OPNET full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Low stress except for maybe one or two weeks out of the year. Flexible hours. Compensation is fair. Office location is excellent, near several restaurants and close to metro. Relatively flat management hierarchy (although this may not stay the case after the acquisition). Employee retention is good.

    Cons

    Not many additional benefits or perks. When the CEO/CTO tell you to do something, there's not much room for argument.

    I have been working at OPNET full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging projects are going on all the time. The opportunity to work on these projects is inspiring at times. Learning from a few of the employees and managers is always a bonus. There is a real sense of camaraderie among groups of employees which makes it a great place to work.

    Cons

    Upper Management has such a skewed sense of self entitlement that they have lost their manners when speaking to employees. Often times SVP's and below are spoken to with such condescending tones, it's embarrassing to be in the meeting. The company is so overly micro managed it ends up bottle necking projects and costing the company more money due to delayed decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop Micro Managing. NEWS FLASH! Loyalty is a two way street...so many employees are loyal to the Upper Management of OPNET....it would be nice if it were felt from the top down.

    Delegation is important, and senior management needs to federate more.
