Your dictatorship is stupid

I bleed red, white, and blue and thank you for your service but for God’s sake, stop with your militaristic ways of management and attitude. It’s ineffective and no one gives a flying phuck. Your pewpew training isn’t as transferable as you might... —  read more

All they want is cheaper

One year under TB, another round of layoffs or restructuring, whatever they call it. QAD didn't hit their revenue targets but did hit our EBITDA goal, which seems like its the only goal that matters since its directly tied to everyone's bonuses. On... —  read more 

Layoffs today

I heard of yet more layoffs at RVBD today. I left a few years ago, but it is sad to see a company run aground so badly. There once was potential, but terrible leadership ki-led the company Good luck to those left


I've been very happy at Riverbed - my team is growing. The company is very upfront with information through town halls and AMA meetings from Leadership. We are growing and in sync. It's easy to complain or find things to bring the team down. It's... —  read more 

Phishing test seriously?!

At a time when their employees might be terrified about paying heating bills, soaring mortgage costs or even feeding their families. Trying to tempt you with a gift card that might go some way towards reducing the burden of the holidays. Argument... —  read more 

Riverbed is DONE

Riverbed has been done for years. WAN optimization is irrelevant. It's something that can be built into other products as a feature rather than a standalone product. Alluvio is an also-ran. Why buy from Riverbed? This company is done. Unless... —  read more 

Time for me to leave

If someone were to ask me what frustrates me the most in this company, I wouldn't know where to start. The list of bad things is too long. Is there anything here that would be worth staying for? Maybe I'm exaggerating, but I don't see any good... —  read more 

Is anyone buying SDWAN?

Is anyone buying SDWAN from Riverbed? It seems like adoption in general is slow, but is Riverbed even a player anymore? Steelconnect seems like a flimsy solution from an unstable company. Who would bet their network on that?

Hired Another VP

Just announced another new hired VP, that manage two existing VPs, and report to a SVP, who reports to COO then to CEO VP or higher, already 5 layers. Guess VPs will do all the works. What a joke!

The case of the missing IPO

Just as your IPO dreams disappeared here is the amazing Alluvio ‘lipstick-on-a-pig’!! How many times can people accept ‘stock options’ only to have them taken away? The leadership is busy making their name in the industry and promoting themselves... —  read more 


(...)Alluvio by Riverbed, which reflects the company’s heavy focus and investment in unified observability over the past year. (source: CRN) In my humble opinion, Alluvio is a failure. What is really going on with investments here? Does Riverbed... —  read more 

New Hire in EMEA

I am a new hire in EMEA and reading all this stuff after I had already resigned is really making me nervous. I come also from a dinasaur company with terrible pay but where I am located Riverbed still has potential customers and business is... —  read more 

Times Have Changed

I am writing this in as a reflection piece about my time at Riverbed. When I heard about Riverbed in 2012, I knew I had to get onboard there. I supported the product at another company and then did my best to learn the product and finally applied... —  read more 

No place to grow a career

I feel sorry for young people who come here with the intention of growing their career. Unfortunately Riverbed has become a place for gaining some experience and nothing more. Once they realize that they leave disappointed. Why doesn't anyone ask... —  read more 

Failing to get an offer

The only reason I’m still here is because I can’t get another offer and I'm starting to feel a bit miserable. I guess many are still here for the same reason? The companies I applied to rarely want experience, but fresh out of college students. —  read more
