    Former Employee - Principal Software Engineer in Cambridge, MA

    I worked at Akamai full-time (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.
