Cambridge headquarter is great place to work!

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA

I have been working at Akamai full-time for more than 8 years

ProsInteracts effectively with various levels of the organization. Treats others’ opinions with respect. Management offers assistance proactively and shares information that helps others do their job well. Probes to understand and confirms understanding of what is heard. Often encourages employee to innovate.

ConsHires too many project manager to create lots of process that often gets in the way of innovation.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe unmanageable, non-productive and remote employees, who are 'resting and vesting' without adding value to the team will end up discouraging the truly talented and hard working employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
