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

Pros

Dynamic company with new perspectives at all time, and embraces the philosophy of happy customers being a win to win to everyone.

Cons

To much stress on top of the escalation engineers, better organization and tuning needed to make the work more enjoyable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lack of smiles, we should have more company activities

    I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As shown by successful acquisitions in past years, the management is forward looking. The company is evolving and growing with a cohesive story while capturing market opportunities. Working with a bunch of smart people in an open and collaborative environment is thoroughly challenging, stimulating and enjoyable.

    Cons

    hard to keep up hiring with growth - workload can be heavy at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    twiki is great but doc database needs better cataloguing and search results as it continues to grow

    I have been working at Riverbed Technology as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Good Name in the industry.

    Cons

    -Horrible management that lies to you about pay raises after 3 month reviews. Don't believe anything this company says to you about performance reviews and bonuses. I've spoken with multiple contractors that have said the same thing about the way this organization lies to their people.
    -Lies told to all contractors about job growth, increase in responsibility, and visibility within the organization.
    -Major attrition in HR. Nobody stays past 6 months because there is no career path at Riverbed in HR.
    -Lack of response in communication from management. You can write repeadeted emails to your manager about action items discussed in past meetings, but if he doesn't feel your email is important, he will just ignore you and act like nothing ever happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason that no one stays in your recruiting organization after 5-6 months in R & D...and it isn't the contractors. Try communicating with your employees and holding yourself accountable
