I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Can be challenging to quickly isolate an issue that a customer is having and then to be able to provide a solution often in trying times. Benefits and pay is good but you'll be expected to work hard.

Cons

Obtaining the tools needed to solve problems is often difficult or impossible to obtain. Employees working out of a locations other than HQ have limited or no growth potential and are often "forgotten" by corporate.

Advice to Management

Listen to grievances expressed by employees and actively work to address them not just say "ok I'll look into it" and then forget them two weeks later.

    Pros

    you are given great independence to do your own work. great amount of trust given to you.
    exciting times as riverbed as they acquired several new businesses and developed new product lines in recent years. engineering competency here is strong and the new product lines are very agile. excellent social events in bay area

    Cons

    teething stage while riverbed is becoming a large organisation with product diversity , there is still a disconnect of knowledge with different product lines . expect frustration as they work through this
