Cisco has so much to offer. They put a lot of emphasis on diversity and inclusion and they really seem to mean it. They offer stretch assignment opportunities, paid time off to volunteer, lots of... seminars/presentations on various topics. Great benefits and PTO too.
Haven't found any yet, really.
Akamai is a rare instance of a tech company that is 1) not actively evil 2) cares about employees 3) adequately compensates us for our labor. I truly enjoy working here and see a future for myself at... this company.
Sometimes work can feel decontextualized - i.e. we are asked to do things without a clear picture of where it fits into the company's overall goals.
