UX Design Intern

User Experience Design (Current Employee)
San Mateo, CA

Pros- Many companies give interns easier projects but Akamai had me work on pretty significant projects.
- Free breakfast and lunch once a week

Cons- they don't pay for lunch hours if you're getting paid hourly
- The San Mateo office didn't have a cafeteria or a place nearby to buy food, but they are moving
- Desks were set up as cubicles. Made the office space extremely quiet.

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