    I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of youthful people as well as people who've been around the industry. By "adult" I don't mean a particular age, I mean there is opportunity to take lots of responsibility and thus become a key team member. Show that you can be depended on, and others will do the same for you. It's really refreshing, and this level of mutual respect extends to excellent benefits as well.

    The San Francisco office is located in a hotbed of tech companies--within a 10 minute walk are Yelp, Wikimedia, Uber, LinkedIn's new building, SalesForce's new building, etc. Tons of restaurants, 1 block to the Museum of Modern Art, & so many kinds of people with so many professions are on the street at lunchtime. The complete opposite of the sterile tech campus neighborhood which, if a 10 foot fence were added, would be indistinguishable from an ultra-max prison for the imagination!

    Riverbed's products express truly new ideas which track the evolution of how wide area networks and the Internet are being used by real companies. If you want to really understand the guts of how today's networks and computing platforms actually operate, you have the opportunity here. If you want to work with very smart people in an atmosphere of trust and make a real contribution, this is the place.

    Cons

    Most of Engineering resists using formal titles (except for manager, director, VP), which can make it difficult to gauge your professional progress.

    The company personality is a bit understated, which might give job seekers the incorrect impression that not much is happening here. To the contrary, heavily hyped social SW isn't even 1/10 as complex and interesting as this stuff.

    Pros

    Compensation is good, culture is great, office in SF so no shuttle rides needed.

    Cons

    A big company which has a lot of products, crusty old internal frameworks, and enterprise customer use cases. All cumbersome.
