Thread regarding Riverbed Technology Inc. layoffs

What is being sold?

Predictions? Aternity formally spun off, no longer a Division of RIverbed? A Large networking company scoops up what is left and buys OEM partner as well? Seems like SFO is ready for another RIF or buy out.
Thoughts? Predictions? Wishful thinking?

How about starting with the Human Experience of Riverbed Employees???

"customers buy business outcomes - not products."

Spoken like a genuine sales training weenie who has never sold a damn thing in its life.

Let's not lose sight that customers buy business outcomes - not products. It's all about enhancing The Human Experience. And Digital Transformation is what's driving The Human Experience.

My idea:

  1. Conduct a safety drill at HQ. Everyone participates - no exceptions.
  2. Have all the employees standing outside count off: 1-2-3,1-2-3, etc.
  3. RIF all the 3s
  4. Repeat every Monday morning until earning targets are met

sell pieces to smaller PEs.
SH is good tech in dead market
Aternity is dead tech in good market. Aternity marketing is 5 years ahead of engineering. good luck with that.

SC is a joke.

stop dreaming about getting bought by real companies.

TB will keep s—ing a good percentage out of EBITDA. That's why the company has to operate above certain EBITDA even that means rounds and rounds of layoffs -to keep TB profitable. No one gives a sh– about developing the company. rvbds just a old dying cow being milked to the last once, then butchered for steaks.

Riverbed is dead. stop dreaming.

Uh, there’s nothing else left worth a p–p to be sold.

If you’ve learned anything from the past years, Riverbed bought a ton of supposedly good tech but didn’t know it’s mouth from it’s anus, so Riverbed f—ed them and itself.
