I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The technology, the problems are all extremely challenging. The camaraderie is great, and office politics is minimal. Work life balance is superb, and the free snacks, espresso, etc. is great.

Cons

It can be hard to advance within the organization due to so many young members and relatively low turn-over (which, I guess is a good thing). Also, integrating many different organizations has been painful at times.

Advice to Management

Allow for more cross-team and cross-product integration roles, so the responsibility to integrating multiple solutions into new products is properly rewarded.

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

    Pros

    The new management team is super solid and I strongly believe the have us positioned for great things.

    Cons

    Change is tough and it can be confusing. The past year has been all about change but the changes are going to take the business to new levels. Seeing so much of the original guard leave makes people question what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate early and often. They do a great job sometime and a lousy time other. If people know about the change that is coming and the impact it will have on them they will be more engaged.
