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

Pros

you are given great independence to do your own work. great amount of trust given to you.
exciting times as riverbed as they acquired several new businesses and developed new product lines in recent years. engineering competency here is strong and the new product lines are very agile. excellent social events in bay area

Cons

teething stage while riverbed is becoming a large organisation with product diversity , there is still a disconnect of knowledge with different product lines . expect frustration as they work through this

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good place to have work life balance. Awesome culture. If you want to be a developer on the system side, this could be a good place to start.

    Cons

    This is not the right company to be a QA Engineer. Worst ever middle managers who play dirty politics , just for the sake of being in the company for "n" number of years they dont even care to listen or trust the junior or entry level engineers.
    Need to follow blindly what ever developer say. No proper learning curve for QA engineers. Cant grow up easily if ur QA engineer, rather than developer where there is larger scope and people with in the development appreciate the work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the middle level managers: Listen to the entry level engineers and talk about the problems, issues rather than avoiding it. No use of trusting higher level engineers all the time.. Biased nature of trusting people will downgrade the work style at some point of time.
