Pros

great benefits, great people, location

company getting very political and hiring some B grade players

Advice to Management

we need to bring back the excitement that we used to have around here. we need to make the hard decisions vs being to nice to other execs to protect their feelings.

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

    Pros

    Riverbed has acquired a number of companies over the last few years, and doubled its size a couple of times. Nonetheless, engineering (usually) manages to remain dynamic and react well to changes, as one would expect of a smaller company.

    Cons

    There are other effects of rapid growth which can be tough - feeling disconnected from newer divisions in the company, the leaders needing time to adapt and assimilate, making the company work as a contiguous unit. These are forgivable, as long as they improve over time.
