Awesome experience, the people who work there are very friendly and helpful.

Internal Audit (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA (US)

I worked at Riverbed Technology as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe employee benefits and the relaxed California culture make coming to work easy. I was only an intern that worked for them over one summer, but I definitely had a great time showing up everyday.

ConsAs an intern I did not face many challenges throughout the day. I would say finding a place to live for two months while working there was the most challenging task I faced.
