    Pros

    Benefits were great and collaboration with other teams was never an issue. IT was always current enabling better productivity.

    Cons

    It would be nice to understand a bit more of how the company is communicating and being benchmarked by the street.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue the focus on the business continuing to grow.

    Pros

    As a serial entrepreneur, I was skeptical of joining a large web services company. Surely, I thought, they couldn't feel like a startup, or innovate as well. Boy was I wrong. Akamai is simply amazing. This is one of the only places you will ever work where the CEO on down will understand the most complex ideas you have...not just as business people, but as scientists. Sure, Akamai is a bit 'tougher' than places like Google that give free lunch, but at the same time, you won't find the kind of innovative grit Akamai has either. This is a Fortune 500 company that has a healthy chip on its shoulder, and doesn't believe its own success. Cautious, smart, and immensely supportive...I have encountered nothing but extraordinary people. It has been a joy to work here!

    Cons

    Some of the remote offices over-compensate, and try to inject themselves into projects they aren't involved in for the glory. The Israel office in particular seems to suffer from this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! And remember not all your execs need to have joined the company 15 years ago.
