I worked at Limelight Networks full-time (More than a year)
- Amazing growth opportunity. It's very easy to visualize a career path with this company
- You have the ability to learn an abundant amount of information on the job
- The team is amazing; culture
- Surrounded by intelligence
- Free food - legit deli style sandwiches, soups, sodas, and much more
- Enterprise environment. This isn't a mom and pop company or a startup.
- Truly the best company I have worked for to date. They really have something amazing going on in the NOC.
- Clam chowder was served too infrequently. As far as the NOC goes, I believe this to be the common consensus, however, I can't speak for the rest of the company, but I imagine they would agree.
Advice to Management
- More clam chowder
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Limelight Networks (Burlington, MA).
Lets see if I can actually post this time after many times over long period of time. It seems you cant use peoples name or title when saying something negative....
The interview process took weeks and was many phone interviews and in person meeting. All engineers were great and prior to last meeting I was told everything was going good.
This is when I met one of the last people who was a complete moron. Someone who had no business being in that position and could barely hold an intelligent conversation. He made moronic statements like "performance is no longer inportant and peopke dont care about things like time to first byte" and seemed to be in love with the akamai model and somehow saw limelight as the alternative.
Uh yeah, hows that stock and lawsuit going? I knew I could never work around this person and we would be in constant battle over the idiotic statements.. The typical "I got a degree 20 years ago from an ivy league school and somehow think it is still relevant today"..
To be clear the interview process and all other engibeers were great and I would have been happy to work with any but the last boob. Recruiter was very professional and helpful through process.
