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

Pros

Open and Encouraging work environment
Talented group of young folks including engineering managers.
Apple products, flex work hours, free food, drinks and usual tech company goodness
Positive interaction with HR and lawyers (read immigration)
New in 2013 - Riverbed The Brand
Office in San Francisco!

Cons

Extremely niche and proprietary technology
Company vision is focussed towards consolidation and acquisitions. No great innovation happening here anymore.
Old school mentality. Managers comfy in their job. Not outwardly ambitious (which will affect you as an engineer) and they gossip a lot.

Advice to Management

Noticed a lot of lateral hires especially into management roles. Promote from within!
