Pros

Work from home (Akamai Anywhere)
Time off program (no set number of vacation days, just get it approved by your manager)
Overall a smart work force with interesting projects
Pretty good benefits

Cons

Career path is not always clear
Generally they'll pay you as little as you can, need to be aggressive about pay bumps.
Benefits are alright, but some other high tech companies in the area are definitely better
