    Pros

    Riverbed is a young company with a fresh attitude to the way it works. Employees are encouraged to participate in events, as well as contribute suggestions on how to improve the way things are done. All inputs are taken on board and where deemed viable they are very quickly implemented. I was truly surprised by the turnaround time from improvement suggestion to implementation. Senior management spend time speaking and listening to employees. There is a real sense of family at Riverbed not just within each department but across the entire organization. This is a great place to work.

    Cons

    I can't think of any downside to working at Riverbed. It's a great company where everyone is respected.

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

    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!
