Thread regarding Riverbed Technology Inc. layoffs

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 growing and teams are expanding.
Are these issues and toxic environments more related to AMS or have I made the stupidest mistake of my life?
So far the experience with my manager, HR were great.

Frankly, why anyone would join Riverbed today? What did force you to make such a bad move? Many people are already out, I am talking about skilled people, finding job in EMEA is easier than ever before. I feel sorry about you.

Most of the people posting here don't even work for the company anymore. You're joining at a good time - at least there is some fresh branding to help us sell.

You will find value here. Enjoy it for now and keep your eyes open for signs of trouble. Take what you will but don’t expect to too much.

Hopefully your fears will be Alluviated (I mean Alleviated...). We got new colors now and a totally new spin on the same solution. But we got it right this time. Promise.

It’s not necessarily a mistake, but start your exit planning now. Make lots of friends, especially among those who seem most likely to leave. Save a little money for a rainy day. Consider how you want to talk about your Riverbed time (why you joined, why you’re looking to leave so soon, what you accomplished in that short time). Good luck!
