    I have been working at Akamai full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1) Work is great, you get to work on some of the best of the technologies 2) Though sometimes it might become little cumbersome, the process they follow is of industry gold standard 3) Get to work with people where most of them are technically very sound. 4) Good Pay

    Cons

    1) As with any org, there will be some managers who are only people managers and not that technically sound.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to limit the recruitment of people only managers.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Akamai full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Laidback work culture, free to explore things on your own. String computer science and networking fundamentals.

    Cons

    Don't expect innovation to come top down. Most innovations within the company has been bottom up, so being a self starter is really important. However, this is really starting to hurt the company at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Be more innovative and encourage employees to be at the cutting edge more rather than relishing in past technologies

    Again it depends on the manager you work under. People can be really work driven which can make the environment a little tense. Job is more platform-oriented so you make not learn generic stuff much
