Positive Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

* Interesting work
* Stable and low risk job

Cons

* You can remain stuck at essentially an entry level position even after working for more than 5 years and being a very good contributor (as accepted by management)
* Pay hikes are very poor
* Very high levels of micro-management and very poor organization
* There is no leader to inspire engineers
* Every release cycle ends with supplanting engineers from multiple teams to get past the finish line. So engineers never get to stay focussed on a solution.

Advice to Management

* Address the cons listed above
* Communicate frequently
* Delegate and stop the micro-management
