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

    Pros

    As shown by successful acquisitions in past years, the management is forward looking. The company is evolving and growing with a cohesive story while capturing market opportunities. Working with a bunch of smart people in an open and collaborative environment is thoroughly challenging, stimulating and enjoyable.

    hard to keep up hiring with growth - workload can be heavy at times

    Advice to Management

    twiki is great but doc database needs better cataloguing and search results as it continues to grow

    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?" :-)
