    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"...

    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.

    disconnect between engineering and sales.

    Pros

    You need a paycheck to survive and that's about the only reason why some are staying until they find the next opportunity.

    There were some great people to work with but nobody is left. The few that remain will probably leave soon.

    Cons

    Bad business practice and constant lies about what's going on. One thing is said, then its contradicted.

    They tell the employees that they need to make some sacrifices in order to succeed, but there's nothing left to give.

    Not competitive in pay at all and no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck retaining the rest of your good employees. The slackers will say and thrive on job security while the talent leaves. Somebody needs to come in and save this place and turn things around. It's possible to turn it around with the right management team that can lead and fight for their employees. The current management needs to be re-structured.

    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.

    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!

    Smaller teams, chance to learn more, but no great training or knowledgeable person to pass on the details. US office have limited access for doing things rest is done in the HQ. So no much exposure.But people are sweet enough to help you learn more.

    Cons

    Salary is less compared to the Bay Area standards and very less benifits.
