I have been working at CDNetworks full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-Many good people
-Many good technologies and services (not all)
-Ability to get promoted or change jobs
-Small company mindset with big company financials
-Ability to get noticed at any level and make an impact

Many other reviews are too quick to point out the flaws with too little regard for the positives. Reorgs and RIFs have been a part of life in Silicon Valley forever, most heavily during the latest long downturn. It is naive to think that this company has been hit harder than most or handled them more poorly. High-tech pays well because it is neither easy nor risk-averse, and cloud companies are at the cutting edge of high-tech. Choose your career and company accordingly.

Cons

-Some internal politics (although less than I've seen at some other companies)
-Pay is fair but many in high-tech expect better than average pay for average performance
-Product/service development is erratic

Global company doesn't/can't move as quickly as a CA-based company.

    I worked at CDNetworks

    Pros

    Decent technology; Critical mass in CDN market to make a difference. With the exception of management, the employees are hardworking and are focused;

    Cons

    CEO is heavily influenced by some inner circle folks (Marketing, Technology) and this causes a very negative work atmosphere; Company is spending more time on internal politics and BS than trying to please customers and employees. Complete disrespect for employees especially from VP Sales and CTO. CDNetworks had (!) a great opportunity in the US market and is losing market share quickly due to lack of focus, internal politics and above all, recurring, 6 month reorganizations.... CDNetworks has been without solid leadership for probably 3 years now. They are up to the 4th 'CEO' for NA

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on pleasing your customers and make your employees your #1 asset. Create an atmosphere in which people want to work and perform.

    I have never worked in a place where I have felt as valued as an employee as I do here. Also a great bunch of people.

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

    Pros

    Excellent Office Location (Right next to St Paul's).
    Great Commission Scheme.
    A fantastic product that sells in the market place.
    Great work life balance.
    Great rewards: Lots of food, BUPA, Go Karting, Dinners, Drinks, Events and other incentives.

    Note: A lot of people have left here recently due to the vacancy left by the previous Sales Director. However, the view of the majority is that these people were either dead wood (just check the spelling of the previous employee's comments) who needed to go due to their attitude and performance, or they genuinely moved onto better opportunities because of what they achieved here.

    Cons

    The Kitchen is SO FAR AWAY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people.
    Ensure that the office that we move to next year is a good one.
    Keep up with the rewards.
