Former Employee - Performance Engineer in Cambridge, MA

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

Pros

Location. Not great, but good benefits. Flexible schedule.

Cons

Too much politics. Immature management staff; promoted based on tenure and not necessarily direct or true experience. Silly tchotchkeys. Poor hiring talent. Awful, actually.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop enforcing strict quotas on hiring and hire better qualified professionals who don't require the level of on-boarding the company is trying to achieve. This is OK for interns, but seasoned professionals? Less politics, more accountability.

    Pros

    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!
