I have been working at Akamai as an intern (less than an year)

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.

    Akamai really pays attention to all the new hires. An extensive and detailed training program will be applied to every employees. I learned a whole lot technical knowledge as well as presentation skills from this training. Everybody in the office is super fun and friendly - I get to know them on personal levels. They pay intern/coops very well too!

    I worked at Akamai full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice benefits and location. some great people to work with..while most seem to have no problem stabbing people in the back or throwing people under the bus.

    Gaslighting is a true art form within Akamai saw this happen to several people before it happen to me.

    Cons

    Terrible work/life balance, only way to keep up is to take computer home and work evening and weekends including vacations.

    lack of true opportunities unless part of the good ol boy's club....women not welcome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    why..they dont care and haven't from the start.
