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?

Finally giving up and letting go

I don’t know if every team has someone who sits on an undeserving title, springs into action to be the loudest and smartest guy in the room, talk a big game, tells you how much they knew back in the 80s, 90s, 00s, has someone in mind to always... —  read more

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 

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 

I stayed here too long

I stayed for more than 10 years and now I wish I hadn’t. It is only now that I am looking for a new job that I realize that my skills have atrophied here. This is no longer a company where it is possible to grow a career. My advice to all newbies... —  read more 


I’m seeing a bunch of people leaving. I figure it has to do with the bankruptcy, lack of growth, bad management, etc., but is this there another only reason that I don’t know about? Like a RIF or something?

Way to go!

Diversity of leadership roles is a true strength and hallmark of Riverbed. Bravo! Keep it going! This place really needs more washed up white guys running it, otherwise it’ll never survive. And let’s blame the last administration for all the... —  read more 


I think we're at the point that - if you are not friends with the right people - the only way to advance your career is to change companies. If you are hoping to move up and don't relish the idea of kissing somebody's behind, then you're out of luck... —  read more
