    Current Employee - Account Manager in Tempe, AZ

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

    Pros

    The benefits at LLNW are great, the values are in line with our mission, and unlimited vacation policy is amazingly flexible. There is a lot of room for career growth and development in this company. The atmosphere is clean, bright and cheery.

    Cons

    My main complaint is that middle management has the tendency of overreacting and not handling crisis management well. There is definitely room for improvement that our new c-suite team is doing a great job trying to improve. They are placing new industry experienced Senior VPs that help Mgr to Director level employees improve in this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please supply more management training in the areas of HR, Cultural Diversity and Crisis Management. Please...not video trainings. Actual experienced trainers that can provide in-person training courses in efforts to help them become more effective leaders. Middle Management should also look at this type of training as an opportunity to improve not a waste of their time.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Tempe, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Limelight Networks in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    There were multiple phone calls, a technical interview, but no on-site interview required. There were delays in the initial process due to turnover in HR and hiring manager. Since this was an employee referral (which the company seems to prefer) there was no recruiter to get in the way of communications. Further, HR quickly put me into direct contact with the hiring manager, so instead of pointless checkbox questions, we could discuss real requirements as well as desired attributes and outcomes.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were asked about Perl, Bacula, Zabbix, and cfengine. I was surprised to discover they wanted cfengine2-specific answers, but overall they were more concerned with knowledge in the relevant top areas (scripting, backups, monitoring, configuration management). I had minimal Perl knowledge, and no direct experience with the other three tools, but they were happy to accept answers couched in terms of Python, NetBackup, and Puppet.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was actually quite easy. Since I was in direct contact with the hiring manager rather than going through an intermediary, it was very easy to express concerns, desires and requirements. Further, in areas where the manager was unable to directly meet my needs (PTO policy at the time was 2 weeks), I was guaranteed that I would not actually be limited by that policy (and I wasn't).
