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

    Pros

    Work from home flexibility, good manager relationships, lots of benefits, lots of non-work activities

    Cons

    Too much work packed into 8 hours, too much emphasis placed on meeting SLAs ("the sky is falling" approach).

    Advice to Management

    Either hire more people or ease up on these internal SLAs that make the job all-the-less rewarding. More offloading of non-technical cases need to be *re-assigned* to other departments (e.g.RMA, Renewals). Sometimes I feel like a machine myself, going through technical issues as fast as possible without coming up for air, all in the name of delivering customer satisfaction. The case load is high and leaves less time to spend absorbing what was learned or learning new features of the product. In order to meet case-taking expectations, there is hardly anytime left for KCS, which is being touted as the #1 priority ... but is it, really? Sometimes I wonder. "Can you take a case?" :-)


  2. "High speed aggressive company from which there is much to learn in any career area"
