    Pros

    Compare it with a curry mixed with spices and let your tongue do the rest. Pick the flavor you want and gulp down the rest.Ultimately the stomach is all seeing. This company has got its moments. Employee benefits are fabulous and they have some great things in terms of employee engagement.The money is good, and the environment is fantastic. The pantry is one of the best in India.

    Cons

    The management can be funny at times because they possess a great sense of humor. Superiors can be vindictive and brash. Company tries to project a young vibe but its a give away like false teeth.

    Advice to Management

    Spread your wings, cheaper products in the market will be tough competition. Increasing servers worldwide may not be the right strategy. Acquisitions should be a focus area , after all your the creator of the Akamai Intelligent Platform.
