    I worked at Akamai full-time (more than 10 years)


    Big company benefits - good health care, Discounted Employee stock purchase plan (ESPP), 401k. Good place to gain broad technology skills (CDN, internet, security, performance, FEO)


    Extremely political culture, too many layers of management, poor career advancement opportunities, everyone overworked, no vacation policy (elective)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate silos and encourage more cross-pollination across theaters, remove layers of bureaucracy, empower your employees to take risks and do what's right, empower middle management to actually be able to impact change for the troops, restore a culture where it's ok to have different opinions and encourage healthy debate

    Neutral Outlook
