Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at Limelight Networks full-time for less than a year

Pros

The culture of the Seattle office is second to none. Everyone's working together to make great products. We have almost no conflict between engineering, management, product and sales.

You might not believe this, but as a software team, we get to spend the time we need to deliver high quality, maintainable software, rather than rushed, buggy crap. Both product management and sales respect the engineering team's recommendations and only occasionally oversell / overcommit.

Cons

Some of the company policies coming from HQ can introduce unnecessary overhead around things like machine acquisition and deployments, but even this is kept in check by excellent management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue growing toward the more agile, less process driven ways of doing things. Follow the lead of the Seattle office to develop a collaborative, trust-based environment throughout the entire company.

    I have been working at Limelight Networks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere
    telecommute
    producing technology that the world uses and will rely on

    Cons

    Dynamic environment, change is always taking place in effort to improve efficiency.
    Top level communication is sometimes vague.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my opinion, it is better to delay the launch of a product when it is not ready to protect the brand vs. releasing a product to meet a date requirement.

    Something like:

    Customers would rather have a house with doors a month late, rather than getting a house with no doors on the scheduled delivery date.

    Pros

    Working on SaaS solutions with the engineers who build the CDN can lead to cool software.
    A lot of growth in mobile.
    Stable environment without too much red tape.
    Get to release software every 6 weeks.

    Cons

    There are some overlapping/competing products.
    The various teams could do with more integration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some more product managers would go a long way.
