Innovation returned after several years of status quo

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Cambridge, MA

ProsAkamai is in a better position than ever to tackle some very interesting and challenging problems in the next few years. There is a renewed sense of innovation in the Engineering organization and hiring has significantly increased and improved in quality recently compared to several years ago.

ConsAkamai has yet to get to an enterprise level of business & technical process which is relatively unusual for a company of this age. This goes both ways but is mostly negative. It certainly makes ramp up time for new employees longer than typical and can be an unnecessary drag on existing employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in on-boarding new employees, particularly in the engineering disciplines. More technical and management training for all.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
