    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!
