    Experience provided, the culture of the organization and the peer interaction keep the job an interesting growth experience in a supportive culture.

    Current Employee - Member of Technical Staff in Champaign, IL

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

    Pros

    I enjoy working here - culture is great, the people are great, and the benefits are great. The work I do is for the most part interesting and it's exciting to see people investing to continually improve the product and process.

    Cons

    Some growing pains as we move integrate with our recent acquisition and attempt to market multiple products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a strong assumption that we don't need to be in any meetings unless proven otherwise.

    Let's focus on improving the quality of existing features - that'll make developing new ones later a much faster and smoother process.

    Pros

    Jerry's philosophy is that he wants to make Riverbed the kind of place he would want to work even if he was not the CEO. The result is a very friendly, flexible place to work.

    Cons

    We work pretty hard. There always seems to be new updates to the products and support is not quite able to keep up.

    Pros

    lots of really smart people building great technology

    now big enough for politics and fiefdoms to emerge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep focused on growth, help break down barriers. More marketing, seems like our message isn't being heard

    Pros

    Pay is good, sales enablement is good- best I've seen, very strong spend on the products to make them the best.

    Cons

    Integration with Opnet has been difficult but they are working through it and are almost out of the woods at this point. They are taking the products ahead from where Opnet left off and making them even better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course with RPM, crack the "app-side" selling code.
