I have been working at Akamai (more than 5 years)

Pros

The technology is really cool and unique, and the business is in an extremely strong position. There are a lot of smart people, so you learn a lot very quickly. There is a lot to do and hard work is rewarded to some degree. Most of the people people are good to work with as well.

Cons

The system is complicated and there are a lot of details to learn. Politics can be rough at times. There is a lot of proprietary software and a lot of it is not well documented and/or supported.
