    I have been working at Akamai full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company is still a brand name that others respect, stable work environment, decent amount of time off if you can take it, relatively good health plans, work is often interesting and engaging

    Cons

    Pressure-cooker environment, toxic internal politics, no true vacations (expect to be available 24/7/365), constant downward cost pressure creates a constantly increasing workload, poor documentation of proprietary systems despite their age, 'family/personal-life friendly' atmosphere does not extend uniformly to all departments, pay trends toward lower range of the spectrum unless you leave and come back

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to remember that more departments exist than sales and that the kool-aid parties that work for customers don't fool the rank and file. Stop running it like a start-up!
