    I have been working at CDNetworks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I got hired a few months back in a leadership position. I'm now convinced I made the right decision to join CDNW. I have been given autonomy and support to drive change and it has been a great experience so far. Most folks have bought in to the direction and strategy and business reflects that.

    Cons

    We need to get rid of under-performers and those who are not fully engaged.

    Advice to Management

    Aggressively push the lazy people out.

    I worked at CDNetworks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Do nothing and get paid ( way below average salary)

    Cons

    - No Perks, No bonus, No profit to the business. If you dont want to learn then please join this company. Poor work culture. Company is fooling around to employee and worst HR management. Every korean employee speaks in Korean work related things too ( "like seriously"). No new technology.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some educated people and care about employee. change the management team. Dont compare with akamai. Be you're self.

    Pros

    somehow they keep the company alive, free soda...

    Cons

    same old Korean mgmt..these guys don't really do anything and blame sales.. they sit in the ivory tower and lay sales people off over and over...never been in the trenches with us. revolving door of sales people...

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the stale managers... get some people that can make it happen. dont fool yourselves... you can't compete with Akamai or Amazon... you can't keep driving the good people out... you can't run a business with "yes Men"...

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

    Pros

    Some of the employees are capable and intelligent and are not being heard and are under-utilized

    Cons

    Weak management team. Absolutely no leadership. No employee acknowledgement, no perks, no budget for anything.

    No 401k matching, no stock options. No career development.

    The good employees are quitting left and right.

    Advice to Management

    Free food and beer once every few months doesn't build office culture. Real productive team building is needed. Listen to your employees and be open to change. Your ways are outdated.

    I have been working at CDNetworks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free Soda and quick hire. People seem nice and wanting to teach how technology works. Nice view from the office.

    Cons

    I have only been here a month and I hear about Lay offs. No raises. People leaving and everyone looking to leave. Support issues related to outages, and 3rd party partner products having problems and us having no way to fix it.

    I thought there was a rebuild going on as that is what was part of the pitch to bring me in but talking to people it seems like there has been a "rebuild" going for the past 2-3 years and not getting any better.

    Advice to Management

    No energy from senior management. Our all hands meeting was just a munch of mumbling and such a downer about last year performance being the worse ever. No vision!!! No drive or ability to motivate to turn the ship around. Scary!

    I worked at CDNetworks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job, and they pay you money. The location is convenient relative to the freeway. There are decent places to eat nearby.

    Their actual technology, while poorly designed, actually performs quite well, especially relative to many competitors.

    Cons

    Culture is not meritocratic (employee-voted-on MVPs were often overridden by management for political reasons). Dishonest business practices (lying about compensation, stealing confidential information from competitors). They created incentives to chain people to their desks. Product management was done using waterfall instead of agile methodologies.
