    Pros

    There are lots of bogus reviews from disgruntled (fired) employees who couldn't cut it here. These individuals submit bogus reviews (wrong title, etc) because this is their only recourse.

    Like any other place of employment, it is not perfect here, however it is not as dismal as it's portrayed by some of the reviewers. Do your research, talk to current employees,

    Cons

    Lack of strategic focus and direction.

    Pros

    Had some great, smart, fun people to work with. Had great potential to be a top global CDN.

    Cons

    Some of the top leadership lacking global business tactics, connections and a lot of politics inside the company.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, they're not there anymore

    Pros

    Maybe the sodas and the good parking. near 101 and the San Jose airport.

    They need people so if you want a job and plan on leaving work here. Otherwise, understand that it will end badly.

    Cons

    Same story since 2007, wasted their money on weak Presidents and COOs, Their Current President has zero experience.

    No integrity.
    Don't want to pay sales people
    They keep spending money on Marketing but don't understand that it is netting nothing.
    Internal Korean politics
    Their customer base is from the companies they purchased

    It's amazing that so many people are suing both CDNW and the President, both the London office and US office. Search Santa Clara County Civil cases.... at least 9 on going now.

    Advice to Management

    KDDI take over for the Koreans!! Boot all the executives out.....The current President and Vice Presidents are taking your money and blaming the employees. Stop the LAWSUITS and hope you can survive the industry. Your President is an idiot with no experience. Pay your employess onetime and don't lie to them.

    Bring some experts in to fix the problems....

    Pros

    Opportunity to make an impact as a full service Global CDN

    Cons

    Leadership that steals ideas and attempts to manage up to the parent company KDDI. There original goal was to only sell to manufacturing plants and "Login pages". They pushed or let the real "Sales & Marketing" personnel go as soon as they got their current strategies of “Luxury brands, Mature global CDN including China” from them.

    Advice to Management

    Don't mislead your new hires... don't blame others when you can't succeed yourself! --- When you climb the corporate ladder, be weary of who you "step" on because you will see them on your way down. Tell the truth to your new employees...don't mislead you new sales and marketing teams...

    Pros

    Ping pong, soda and coffee.

    Cons

    Poor management. Reprimands wrong people for failure. No changes to prevent future problems. Unfair compensation. Commissions stolen. Poor Cdn service. Support stalls customers since the delivery team isn't there and if they are, they don't actually help support. No training whatsoever. Racial preferences. If you aren't customer service or sales, you're probably Korean. Sales cave to customers, fake a problem and demand free service.

    Advice to Management

    Find a good lawyer.
