    I worked at Riverbed Technology as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    High level, action packed and in depth experience to business process and SOX audit fieldwork, testing and reporting.

    Exposure to organizational architecture that brought academic studies into vivid life.

    Arriving to work every day with a feeling of excitement because the department is passionate about their work and it is contagious.....it is easy to be excited when supporting an awesome company.

    Extremely professional and knowledgeable IA team, and this cannot be over emphasized. Amazing accumulated backgrounds and each member has a slightly different perspective to share.

    Each team member was very open to sharing knowledge and making the internship a career changing experience.

    Above and beyond the internship was the mentorship in assisting me form future goals. This was easy when working with individuals who had inspiring careers!

    Very inclusive company! Even as an intern, I felt very welcomed and a part of a TEAM.

    Cons

    The only con is that I had to leave to finish school~

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for awesome experience! I only hope my career can lead me back there at some point~

    Pros

    * Free snack bar
    * Free food (sometimes)
    * Good people
    * Good gift at Christmas time.

    Cons

    * Managers/Directors has lots of power (Which they misuse)
    * Commute ( Not allowed to work from Sunnyvale office)
    * No way to make money apart from your base salary
    * Yearly appraisal are totally in manager's hand, he can screw you (which he did to me)
    * Managers never let employee write the goals and objective and its on their discretion.
    * Be ready for the surprises in appraisal
    * Never trust your managers
    * No fun at work place, People just come and work they never interact with each other.
    * Never join the Pilot QA group (Bad Manager and no visibility)

    Advice to Management

    * Treat your employee with respect
    * Listen to them when they raise concern
    * Managers/Director : You are not always right.
