Excellent company

Senior Lead Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA

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

ProsExcellent company, great tech, great people. Global reach, and conservative business plan.

ConsShifting managerial vision at the top, terrible at acquiring other companies. Barebones fringe benefits. Terrible name recognition. Oftentimes too sales driven.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more in engineering. Every project is painfully under-resourced.

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