    In 2013 Riverbed is on the "map", yet possibly past its prime

    I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Open and Encouraging work environment
    Talented group of young folks including engineering managers.
    Apple products, flex work hours, free food, drinks and usual tech company goodness
    Positive interaction with HR and lawyers (read immigration)
    New in 2013 - Riverbed The Brand
    Office in San Francisco!

    Cons

    Extremely niche and proprietary technology
    Company vision is focussed towards consolidation and acquisitions. No great innovation happening here anymore.
    Old school mentality. Managers comfy in their job. Not outwardly ambitious (which will affect you as an engineer) and they gossip a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Noticed a lot of lateral hires especially into management roles. Promote from within!

    I have been working at Riverbed Technology

    Pros

    Flexible, employee Can work in SF or Sunnyvale; They treat us like adults: Management trusts the workers to get their job done and lets them do just that; It was actually a bit of culture shock to work in a place where the management is not micro-managing them. Work-life balance is amazing

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of, would be nice to provide bus to for people that commute from Sunnyvale to SF or SF to sunnyvale
