    I worked at Akamai full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great co-workers, nice office space, flexibility (i.e. working from home)

    Cons

    no perks, stingy pay scale, upper management loaded with failed cast offs from larger companies who are turning akamai into another bloated tech company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stay innovative and reward the engineers appropriately. stop hiring senior management from dying large companies.
