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

    Pros

    Working at Riverbed offers me the opportunity to explore new and different approaches to network/application performance issues. They have an end to end, total systems, approach to both software and hardware technologies that I can use in my problem solving project tasks. Openness at all levels of management is key to my success. Efforts are adequately rewarded and advancement opportunities exist for future professional development. Team approach to problem solving is a strong point in successful project completion.

    Cons

    I am relatively new (less than a year) with the new management style that, once familiar, will seem as good as the old company (OPNET) structure. On line training opportunities are readily available but classroom sessions on the East Cost need to be established for greater interactive, hands-on, experiences,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and minimize bureaucracy.
