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.
