    Former Employee - Senior Systems Engineer in Cambridge, MA

    I worked at Akamai full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Intellectually challenging work in a very collaborative environment. Lots of non-trivial problems to be solved, and many opportunities to provide ideas for solving them. Due to its unique business and technology, the learning curve is very steep, but everybody I met was happy to help you learn.

    If you want to work and think hard, and you want feel that you are contributing to a great team, then Akamai is one of the best places to be!

    Cons

    In 2+ years of working at Akamai I could not find even one "con"!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course.
