    I have been working at Akamai full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Interacts 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    The 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.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Akamai full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The salaries are above verage and their CEO Paul Sagan has done an excellent job to build a company to last. The management team has done an admirable job expanding the product line and customer base.

    Cons

    Paul Sagan is leaving and some talented individuals have also left the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your eye on the target and the competition. We have been losing talent.
