Company reputation

Does this company think about its reputation at all or does the reputation no longer matter to the people at the top? I am sometimes ashamed of where I work. I think the reputation has never been worse.

A-s kissers

Thank God I left that sh---y company. It was my biggest mistake in my career to join that company. When I was hired, they had not told me there would be a pay cut. What a scam! Riverbed owes me money! I was blinded by all the talk about double digit... —  read more 

Riverbed COO sucks

Riverbed COO (Bob) straight out sucks! Least personable. He brought the whole morale down. Morale was 2 levels below sh-t when all hands started and it went 10 levels deeper after his disastrous meeting.

Company Stock

Is anyway to sue Rick or management? At the moment of persuading employee of invest in the company, they said the 9% interest, but never mention they could hold the your money even after you left company.

DM’s signature move

Last of the old guards are out and DM has rolled Aternity back into the fam. Pretty convenient solution to push them out because we all know Aternity has nothing to offer in terms of tech and neither does Riverbed for Aternity. This is clearly a... —  read more 

Is promotion always good?

I have a colleague who is promoted and who is not happy with the company now that he is promoted. Only now is he considering leaving. He has a lot more work to do and is only slightly more paid. I tried to get promoted but failed and now I wonder if... —  read more 

Who owns Riverbed?

As a Ex Riverbed employee, one of the issues I had was the lack of transparency of the financials when TB bought RB. To ask a simple question, who owns Riverbed? Does the Fed own part of RB in the form of junk bonds? Is that one of the only reason RB... —  read more 

Townhall disaster

It was not an upbeat townhall but at least they were transparent (somewhat) about the situation. End to end visibility? Security? Shoot me now. No way in He-l Riverbed can compete in that space. Aternity adds no value. Please give me a generous... —  read more 

Customer base

How fast is the customer base shrinking? Customers seem increasingly dissatisfied. It would not surprise me at all that by next year our customer base is alarmingly reduced. I wouldn’t like to be a bearer of bad news but I wonder what you think about... —  read more 

Will Riverbed survive?

That is, for how long will it stay afloat? I wish it was different, but I really don’t see any hope on the horizon that things could get better here. Moreover, I have a feeling that the more they are trying to 'fix' this company, the deeper it... —  read more 

Where is Riverbed going?

Or does that question no longer matter at all? I am less and less interested in issues in this company because I realized that I am here only because I did not want to start again from the beginning in a new company. I’m almost sure most people are... —  read more 

Status Quo

What about the acquisition that is being discussed all over the place? Either it's a rumor to prevent people from running away in droves at the moment, or Riverbed simply doesn't have the money to afford anything at all. And the security story is... —  read more 

Latest town hall

Why do we even have their town halls? It has zero substance. Survey results? Who gives a f? Learn some finance 101? Who gives a second f? Being more security centric? No one gives a f. Just collect those pay checks and call it a day.

People leaving

and more have quit and more will quit. People are tired of being screwed. Too many announcements and nothing comes. Nothing! The company is done. Shut Riverbed down and sell the best parts to Cisco, Microsoft or somewhere else and do no keep the... —  read more 

We need innovation NOW!

We need innovations now and not in 3 years. Our customers are leaving us in droves because we have nothing more to offer. The company has been sleeping on the job for years, ignoring important trends. They are now trying to gain more control over... —  read more
