Someone needs to report Riverbed to the US Department of Labor for wrongful/illegal employee termination practices because they clearly engage in it. Ever wonder why your hard working and performing coworkers are suddenly sacked? It's discrimination... — read more
I came here to find out if there are layoffs coming. Instead I found this short and sad gist of the state of affairs. Maybe I shouldn’t fear the layoffs after all? Riverbed is a shadow of its former self with ZERO chance of profitability or... — read more
Anyone seen the new guy for Acceleration? Does he come into HQ? Is he the miracle for our woes or just the next dude to wipe out more value? Curious to see if I should speed up my exit
I can only see bankruptcy and liquidation is the only end game I can think of. The other options would be IPO or acquisition. There is no way they can IPO until they become reasonably profitable, which I see no path towards. Acquisition would be... — read more
F Riverbed's HR/Legal cronies. The default package handed out is a complete insult to those who gave it their all. I hope you did right by you by not accepting their original cr-p offer. Shame on you.
Did anyone else receive four months of COBRA covered by Riverbed?
Y'all ready for Bloody Thursday? Good luck and condolences to those left behind to pick up the pieces.
Tim Grant, the founder of Blue Triangle (a Riverbed partner) just released a beta of his new project, an AI-based resume writer which writes tailored resumes aligned to specific job listings based on your work history. It also has other job-hunt... — read more
Yep… RVBD is living on renewals. Renewals pulled their a$$ out of the fire for every quarter so far….ARR : annual recurring revenue. But it’s not recurring forever. Especially if there are no new innovations. And there aren’t. Also note... — read more
Let’s make ‘the Layoff’ the official channel for communication as the company will no longer afford its people this courtesy and respect. The silence from leadership is deafening. MB where are you? Crawl out from under your rock and face the people... — read more
It’s Oct, a new quarter and it looks as though more people are being “disappeared “. Anybody know anything?
My work/life balance has completely disappeared. I'm getting more and more work which I'm expected to finish by a certain date, while nobody asks if it's even possible or not. I have a feeling this is intentional. Riverbed wants to force us to leave... — read more
Prediction for the RVBD End game: Vector Capital cuts down to the bone to be profitable. Lots of layoffs, elimination of everything nonessential. There is still a good bit of revenue to be had for a while from SH /NPM renewals and continued... — read more
Next on the moving on list is the CRO...taking a new role within the next thirty days
Riffed…. The Knives are clearly out for any knowledgeable Old Guard and senior level people. Packages su-k. Two months for nearly seven years. WTFMofos But what can you expect from this broke a-s company. Pretty clear that high quality work on... — read more
Are severance packages still being handed out post-Vector buyout? I suspect cuts to my team is on the horizon.
Started here less than a year ago, and trying to make it to a year mark but man it is difficult. Had I known what I was getting into, I wouldn't have jumped ship from my last place to this, but as somebody who came from a place that ran like a well... — read more
Word has it the CMO is departing....who will be next?
Are more layoffs coming? What about departments like HR, Marketing, Finance, etc?
Many people I know in engineering orgs got laid off today. Steelhead was supposed to be the stable cash cow. Did Alluvio get hit yet?
The sh*t is hitting the fan today
When are layoffs going to happen?
Isn't downward momentum considered a death spiral?
Looks like the white knight has arrived! Read the filings carefully to see how much Danny and his band of merry id--ts will be receiving in severance......
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
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
I'm hoping to be laid off just to get away with something to show for it.
Riverbed is going to go out of business if they don’t develop some relevant and useful tech. Use your experience as a stepping stone to a better place. Sadly, this here is the truth. This used to be a great place to have a career, but lately, it's... — read more
How is anyone supposed to build a career when your leadership changes out like you change your undies (daily). Incompetent hiring managers hiring incompetent leaders. Love the ⭕️ jerk.
As an accomplished executive, I am known for my relentless focus on execution and ability to deliver immediate impact, while leading organizations during times of growth and change. Over the years, I have delivered substantial improvement in both... — read more
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
So not surprising to see lots of posts about the clearly expensive sales kickoff in Las Vegas! Hey, why not party while the ship is burning!
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
