Have you interned at Riverbed before?

This is my first time interning at Riverbed. As this internship is nearing its end, I can confidently say this was one of the best environments I’ve had the privilege of working at. All of the employees here, from our own managers to employees outside our department, have been very welcoming and open to lending a helping hand. Riverbed is truly a great company with great people.

What projects are you working on?

This summer I have worked on several different projects. I’ve updated trading plans and their respective grants for senior members of the company, worked on an international compliance project, updated employee stock information, worked with a program called Equity Edge that manages employee’s stock. 

What have you learned at your time at Riverbed?

This has already has been an incredible learning experience. Working in the stock department for a public company that trades on the NASDAQ has allowed me to be exposed to the various logistics that go into managing stock for domestic employees and also the different regulations that are in place for international employees. I’ve also found a potential career path as my manager has been teaching me about the CEP, an option that is definitely appealing to me.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In 5 years I’ll be 24, graduated from college, and hopefully holding a steady job. I’ve always wanted to get my MBA but that is probably something I would want to get after working for a few years post-graduation. But since it’s summer time I really see myself living it up on an island like Ibiza, sipping on a pina colada and enjoying life to its fullest.
