I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The folks that work in engineering are AMAZINGLY talented. Very bright, easy to work with and I have never had any issues working with them due to personality, language barriers, etc. My previous experience has been quite a doozy and Riverbed is a refreshing change. Our team is treated very similar to a start up, so we work at a very quick pace and sometimes the deadlines are daunting, yet I've seen growth in my knowledge and understanding of systems as a whole. In general, this place is EXCELLENT and I would recommend it to any of my friends/colleagues that are looking for a change.

Cons

Well.. It's treated like a start up, so it's a lot of work. But, you get compensated fairly and also have *some* breathing room, so that's nice.

Advice to Management

Continue doing what you're doing. It's working.. :)

    Pros

    Great engineering talent; Best chance for a young engineer to develop in a stable company and yet contribute significantly to some amazing technology; Management has the right attitude to solve problems without taking shortcuts; Its a very supportive (read - "not" cut-throat) work environment which fosters personal development and learning; Career growth is almost completely (as far as realistic) determined by self-motivation; Extremely flexible and friendly work schedule - you can truly work from home or remote locations when you have/need to without worry of judgement

    Cons

    Growing pains as the company scales; Inability to stave off fancier suitors like Google/Facebook/HotStartups coz Riverbed doesn't exude the same oomph

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation;

    Pros

    Riverbed provides a collegial, open, collaborative, upbeat, balanced atmosphere.

    Cons

    Riverbed is growing so fast, it's hard to keep up some times.

    Advice to Management

    This management team has worked together for years. They know how to get things done as a team. The rest of the company works well together because of the tight relationships at the executive level. Keep up the good work.
