    Pros

    Treats its employees like adults. You are allowed to color outside the lines, as long as you know what you're doing and have a goal. Interesting tech problems to solve. Management is not just focused on next-quarter results. If you are a high performer, you will be financially rewarded for it.

    Cons

    Because Akamai is a flat-ish company, moving up in the corporate structure is not easy. There is much to learn, and not necessarily in a structured way so you have to be able to synthesize information quickly.

    I have been working at Akamai full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fast paced, global, absolutely cutting edge technology. Company is growing like crazy.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is impossible. Impossible to say "no"; expectation is to just keep layering more work on with no end in site. Immature executives in the VP level, everyone escalates right to the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the middle management/executive team to make the right decisions. Please stop the escalations if you don't like the answer. Tiring and does not embody that we hold people accountable to make the right decisions.
