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

Pros

Fast growing, pays well with great intangible benefits (free food at HQ, vacation time, Apple laptops and ipads, etc..)

Cons

Sales driven company. (this can also be considered a Pro as RVBD will do what it takes to make a sale, but you are always judged on your performance)

Advice to Management

Do not lose the startup mentality and flat management style. It is refreshing and keeps the company moving up

    Pros

    They work hard to provide high quality products, but they also believe in treating their employees well. They have strong salary and benefits. They are open to change.

    Cons

    Even though they are 10 years old, they still feel a lot like a start-up. This is a pro in many regards, but where they still suffer is providing good documentation for new employees, good tools to make working easier, and good tried-and-true processes to improve work and quality.

    Advice to Management

    We need to get more serious about providing well-thought-out tools for Engineering. Too many of our tools are clunky and unintuitive, even the mission critical ones. It makes daily life a bit frustrating and slows down productivity. We don't need first in class tools internally, but they should be workable and intuitive.
    Always remember that one of the primary purposes of management is to make creating the product with quality and efficiency as easy as possible. To that point, don't ask Engineering to do things to help management produce pretty reports. Help Engineering by giving them the information and tools to do their job better and easier.
