    Pros

    Some very smart co-workers, fascinating work, our products make the Internet run. Easy access to upper management. At Akamai, you get to learn about how the Internet work, and about how other companies use the Internet. Awesome work-life balance, and the people here are wonderful - nice people with families. Great diversity here too - there are people with PhD's in physics, math, and computer science, even neurobiology. Not just code monkeys.

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive with Facebook/Google; the company is at an awkward size. We're not a startup, and though we try to recruit the same people who go to Facebook & Google, we don't have the cash to compete with those giants. Documentation on internal technologies can be hard to find.

    Advice to Management

    Make compensation and perks competitive with the Google's and Facebook's of the world. Spend more on R&D. Foster better cross-team communication, collaboration, and documentation. Build more leadership & career development opportunities in.
