    Pros

    Riverbed has a great group of people working there and you will never be bored because there is always something new happening. The work is challenging and fast-paced but you don't feel that you are the only one pulling your weight. Everyone works hard there and for the most part, there is always someone willing to pitch in. Great teamwork atmosphere as well.

    Cons

    It can sometimes seem that people who are really not doing their job, are given too many chances to improve. They will be moved to different positions or promoted, when the general consensus is they are not high caliber employees. Sometimes it seems that the company has a problem with changing course too much and following the new and shiny object. We need to stay on top but we also have to look like we have a plan.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part it is a great company to work for and this is advice may seem strange, but hold people accountable more. Define the company strategy and stick to it for more than a quarter.


  2. "Great company culture"

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

    Pros

    - Your colleagues collaborate rather than compete with you
    - Good compensation
    - Supportive management
    - Atmosphere of trust - employees treated as responsible adults
    - Employees participate in interviewing and evaluating potential candidates (not just management)
    - Reasonable working hours and good working conditions

    Cons

    - Finding the most current and relevant information on a topic is sometimes hard to find.
    Hopefully this will change with the recent introduction of a new knowledge management system.

    Advice to Management

    More equipment available in labs that is often found in customer environments
