Thread regarding Riverbed Technology Inc. layoffs

Is it possible to reapply after being laid off?

I'm one of those s—ers who actually enjoy working at Riverbed. I haven't been laid off yet (obviously,) but if it happens, is there a possibility to reapply for a different position? Is there anything in the severance agreement that would prevent me from doing so right away or for good?

Any info would be appreciated.

I just don't get it why don't you guys apply for Google Amazon Microsoft Facebook etc, they have office everywhere and are guaranteed better places to be. Once you land a job at those places you won't give a shot to rivrtbed any more.

I was part of the rif that happen in July. I was asked and pursued to come back in a role. I didn’t take it for a few reasons. 1) I would only be there because I hadn’t found a new Org/role yet I wanted to accept and I would be in a perpetual interview mode the whole time. The hiring manger didn’t deserve that most of all I like the folks trying to bring me back. 2) I have a problem with being dumped and I mean our whole group was severed, and going back to the place that just dumped me on the street. 3rd I asked for a time in service bridge to protect me against another rif that I would at least get a decent severance when it happen again. The answer was no but they wanted to sweeten the deal on the commission side not salary side.

I will say this the themes of the last two SKO’s were on point. 18 was a GOT theme and it was a bloody year with Jerry leaving and the Brits taking over. Needless to say the 19 theme of it being a Circus well don’t need to say more. Take care all remember hiring happens in cycles. I was fortunate I was severed July 19th and I accepted a position on Aug 27th. Cool thing no change in pay, if Riverbed does do another reduction before the end of the year (The frequency started to increase to every quarter) Hiring slows down at the end of October and psi justo up again in March. Just my experience

I was laid off and a few months later received LinkedIn messages from the recruiter and hiring manager asking me to apply for an open role. I’m considering it tbh. The new company I am at is an even bigger mess than Riverbed (imagine if steelconnect were Rivebeds only product and that’s my new company)

Yes, if there are job openings you can reapply and nothing in the exit docs say that you cant. I asked that same question on my exit interview and they said that you can reapply and get hired for any job opening. No matter what you feel about the company/management a job is a job and we all have bills to pay.

I know a case where this company (or boss) called a victim back but why do you want that? Unless you need a job desperately, I do not see any reason for that.
