I worked at Riverbed Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good products like WAN optimizer and load balancers.

Cons

I really get surprised when I see this company gets the best working place award in silicon valley. actually out of about 10 companies I have worked with in my life, this is the worst one. there are no ethics, no human values. There were days when management denied my sick leave to take my wife to hospital. There were days when I asked for help from management and they simply were not available and tried to save their seats. I will never ever think of working with same company again. In fact, I am now afraid of working with start-ups and smaller companies due to my experience with Riverbed. Happy to be with one of the multinational company who really cares about HUMAN values and helps to grow you ethically right.
later on after leaving this company couple of years back, found that I was not alone that was literally harassed like this.
I would highly recommend you to stay away from this company.

Advice to Management

get rid of your top management layer, appreciate the true human value and help employee in needs.

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

    Pros

    Riverbed is a fantastic company to be a part of on a daily basis! the opportunity to be part of what still feels like a small start up but being the leader int he market is outstanding.

    Cons

    All companies face growing pains. We have just retooled our approach over the last 6 months and now we are finally seeing results.

    Advice to Management

    Back down off of your policies a bit. Too much change too fast has had an effect on moral.

    Pros

    Great technology, people, and local reputation

    Cons

    Increasingly large size brings with it a sometimes uneasy mix of the 'new' with the 'old' that is resistant to change

    Advice to Management

    Keep offering competitive pay to retain top talent
