    I have been working at Akamai full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    People are really nice. A modest amount of effort is made to have some fun. Some attention is made to quality. So far they've been generous.

    Cons

    Silo managed. Each group works in its own silo separate from other groups. Deep management structure aggravates the situation. We have more managers than a company 10 times our size. People who work on the same section of code may not share a common manager until the top executive VP six levels up. New technology comes in through acquisition rather than research. Definite lack of diversity. Few blacks and few woman in development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the middle management. Flatten the management structure. Invest in research. The same people working on the product and working with customers know what needs to be done, so set aside some of their time to do research. Allow us to create our own personal workspaces. Adopt some modern SDLC.
