Riverbed Class Action Suit

Just received a Riverbed Class Action Suit here - anyone else got the same outside of US? Does it mean Jerry & Co. gets sued and we get some money? I did quite read and/or follow the several pages of legal stuff.

Has to be top 10 worst places to be in sales now.

Too many mid level managers that don't do anything, nobody has the balls to fire anyone, and NOBODY is making any real money. There are 100's of scorching hot companies out there. No reason to work at Riverbed anymore. I left 2 years ago. It was like... read more

Riverbed didn't have a clue when it bought OPNET.

OPNET was junk and the people behind it were liars. The products are all outdated and it was dysfunctionally managed. Riverbed went down when it bought OPNET, the biggest mistake made by Jerry. OPNET was on its way to the graves and if it wasn't for... read more

OPNT's $1B ceiling

Agree with the posters about AC, PS & PJ. AC was the real technical vision behind the OPNT's $1B ceiling. And, though I hate saying it, MC was the business and money vision, and the whip who drove OPNT's slave machine. Also agree that PS was nicer to... read more

Customers won't notice anything

Modeler is a dead product that no one cares about anymore. Why didn't we shutdown Modeler and the rest of the Cary office? They are dead weight dragging the rest of us down. We need more investment in AIX but instead we got heavy cuts and they keep... read more

Severance Package

What packages did people get? I was offered 2 months in lieu of WARN, plus a measly two weeks. As I see it, the 2 months is a Federal requirement, as the law states workers must be given 60 days notice of a mass layoff (which this certainly qualifies... read more

Wan Op is a thing of the past. Opnet was only aquired to mask the declining growth of Riverbed, and to create the illusion of revanue growth. That plan worked short term. In 2013 and 2014 less then 30% of the salesforce attained their annual quota... read more
