Welcome to the meat market, Bessie, you won't be here long...

NOC Technician (Former Employee)
Tempe, AZ

I worked at Limelight Networks

Pros-Free food
-Peers and employees in other groups generally very helpful
-Possibility of learning about how a nation-wide network operates
-Benefits were pretty decent, similar to other tech companies

Cons-NOC management selected due to personal relationships with upper management
-All management has no actual training or much in the way of management ability
-No real opportunities for growth or movement within the company
-Caste-based system rewards those who are cronies of management
-One mistake for non-friend of management will result in termination, no so if you're in with the boss

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to grow up and run a publicly-traded corporation like a business, not like high school. Dividing your employees into the 'cool kids' and the 'non-cool kids' is an excellent way to decrease morale and lower overall corporate performance. Of course, the stock price reflects that lately...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good company... with growing pains

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Tempe, AZ

I have been working at Limelight Networks


Pros: - Great work culture - open communication - Very little micro-management or internal politics - Experienced, passionate senior management team - Access to strong… Cons: - Weak process controls - i.e. order management controlled via archaic home-grown ticket system requiring multiple entries of same data to communicate within different departments… Advice to Senior Management: Look to increase investments into other areas in the organization (i.e. marketing, order processing/account management controls) as strategic areas of opportunity to help drive business… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
