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

Pros

They work very hard to keep that energized and fun feel of a start up even though Riverbed has 1800 employees and is publicly traded. During the interview process a strong emphasis is placed on personality fit. This helps to insure that the people you work with are people you want to work with in addition to being extremely confident. I truly like my co workers and management. They are also strong supporters of promoting from within ensuring paths for advancement within the company

Cons

It is a very sales driven company which sometimes leads to over reaction to end of quarter numbers. The total production change freeze from 2 weeks before the quarter close to 2 weeks after seems like over kill

    Pros

    The company has a fantastic reputation in the market for the technology and consistently does what is right for their customers.

    Cons

    The only negative I can think of from my experience relates to being a remote / work from home employee. My on-boarding process was a bit of a "learn as you go" scenario. I believe that was due to a couple factors: 1- need to get up and running quickly with a new business unit, 2- our business unit is still finding its way.
