    Fantastic Internship Experience

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

    Pros

    The inside sales team a fantastic group of people to work with and management is extremely open, welcoming and supportive. I was pleasantly surprised at how involved and appreciated I felt in my role.
    People here seem genuinely pleased with the work they were doing and the impact they were having on the company.
    They also had plenty of events for us to attend, at least one or two a week, such as trainings, volunteer events and lunches.
    Definitely got to build some great relationships with people, so overall a satisfying experience.

    Cons

    Internship program was only open to relatives of current Riverbed employees and there's no way to move up or extend the internship past the 8 weeks.

    Pros

    Riverbed with its reputation and great core technology makes it easy for employees to develop further business and get job satisfaction.

    Cons

    Riverbed has to achieve big to extend into the new markets and this requires hiring the best people in the market as well as keeping the best employees in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listening to the field more outside US, not only from business dynamics perspective, but from HR perspective as well.

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

    Pros

    Good management - there is nothing like the chaos I've experienced at other companies. I'm clear on my goals and I have what I need to achieve them. I know I'm good at what I do, and at Riverbed I have the ability to demonstrate that (and grow at the same time). Good work/life balance - I am happy to put in extra time when I need to, because I'm not on the hamster wheel all the time.

    Cons

    Growing pains as the company tries to scale. Sometimes it's not clear who's making a decision. Having said that, I'm positively amazed by how everyone is willing to fix what's broken (and do it nicely).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep giving employees the power to do their jobs well.
