I have been working at Akamai full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

People, technology and pay. I would recommend Akamai for the people alone but coupled with kind of technologies you get to work on, its addictive for the first year at least.

Cons

The company's growth trajectory is quite literally on fire and problem of coping with such growth does seem to show up now and then.

    I have been working at Akamai full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. No dress code
    2. People are good
    3. Cafeteria/Food is good

    Cons

    1. No proper promotion. They created some sudo ranks with addition of "2". Like TPM 2. In future they may add further numbers. this means you are not really promoted.
    2. No proper Salary Hike.
    3. Shift Allowance is same from past 4 years and no plans to increase in near future.
    4. If you are working honestly, you will not get promoted or will get hike until you do something "extra"
    5. False promises are made by managers. Some newly added managers have spoiled the entire culture
    6. HR department/Management sux and they treat Indian employess as 3rd world country employees
    7. Work from home is only on papers/rule books.
    8. Only managers travel abroad [multi times an year] to meet the other office employees, not the team members
    9. Salary is less as per market standards
    10. MICROMANAGEMENT all over [specially in professional services team].

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not take your employees for granted. honor the employees and give proper rewards/respect. People have now started to leave Akamai and it will increase to high level very soon if you do not take it seriously.
