    Fantastic Internship Experience

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

    Pros

    The inside sales team a fantastic group of people to work with and management is extremely open, welcoming and supportive. I was pleasantly surprised at how involved and appreciated I felt in my role.
    People here seem genuinely pleased with the work they were doing and the impact they were having on the company.
    They also had plenty of events for us to attend, at least one or two a week, such as trainings, volunteer events and lunches.
    Definitely got to build some great relationships with people, so overall a satisfying experience.

    Cons

    Internship program was only open to relatives of current Riverbed employees and there's no way to move up or extend the internship past the 8 weeks.

    Company culture was great, friendly and open. Good place to get your feet wet, since they will treat you well as an intern and give you good starter projects.

    Cons

    You can't move up if you are in the RAP program, but still great for meeting great connections and starting.

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

    Pros

    Riverbed has a great work life balance, great benefits, best products in our tech space, and awesome colleagues to work with. Great and abundant professional development as well. Brand new facility in downtown SF that is spectacular.

    Cons

    Salaries here are on the smaller side compared to similar companies in the SF bay area. There has been some difficultly integrating some of our acquisitions but upper management is generally good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employee's a more competitive salary that is comparable to our competitors and this would be the best place to work ever!

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

    Pros

    Awesome people - very friendly, very helpful and very knowledgeable.
    No process for process sake - extremely practical
    Lightning fast response to customer issues and very sensitive to field input
    Such an approachable leadership everyone from CEO down - I have met Jerry several times and he is very open and honest.
    Extremely talented Marketing folks, social media greats and passionate sales.

    Modern workspace - new SF HQ is par excellence! Sunnyvale facility is more than functional.
    Free snacks, drinks, game rooms and open culture make it possible to have fun and work.

    All in all - in my 20+ years of experience, I have yet to see a company that is so well balanced as Riverbed.

    Cons

    Can't think of many but if you insist, lack of a proper intranet is sometimes stifling. The other is lack of cash bonus as some bigger employers pay - but then we are still a startup!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain your top people, keep up the great work, keep promoting internally.
