    I have been working at EdgeCast Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible timings, Senior Managers are cool.

    Cons

    Not a bad company overall if you are in the right group. There are a few bad apples who spoil it for everybody. Developers are cool for the most part, except a few who talk big and do nothing. Favoritism is kinda rampant in the company too. TONS of people quitting. Project Management team is the worst you will ever find, clueless with attitude and proud of their ignorance starting from the very top. Many good people in that team are leaving, cause can't tolerate their manager yelling at them at whim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire Project Managers who have a clue, know some kinda process and have their leaders treat developers/others with some degree of respect and professionalism. If they can't solve problems and add value, ask them to just step out of the way.

    I worked at EdgeCast Networks as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The work atmosphere is great. There are so many opportunities to work on different areas of interest. As an engineer it is a great place to grow.

    Cons

    The initial training is not very well structured. The training was subject to the free schedule of some of the full time engineers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To have a better organization on the intern training program

    Pros

    Looks like my previous review was deleted. The pay is good but they don't really encourage movement within the company or promote internally.

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Bullying attitude between departments. The NOC gets beat on all day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would restructure the company and get rid of some lower level managers in the NOC.

    Pros

    Upbeat, young work atmosphere with a lot of very smart talented people leading the team. Every day is set with new challenges. It's the kind of place where you can talk with a SVP and he'll help you solve a problem.

    Cons

    There isn't enough structured positions that incentives people to move up the ladder for promotions. The company is starting to be corporate in its ways both with clients and employees.

    Pros

    Leadership from the top down. You will not find more driven executives that are not political and actually have great personalities on top.

    Cons

    Beginning to corporatize a bit, staff is growing larger, communication and process is slowing down and growing a little more complex.

    Pros

    EdgeCast employees are a friendly bunch who are happy to help each other no matter what the challenge. No matter what their title, everyone at EdgeCast seems to have an unspoken understanding that their only job is to help each other provide the customers with the best possible network and service.

    Cons

    What can I complain about? Oh yes, the worst part is that the soda machines aren't free and the ping pong table isn't on my floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
