Pros

Fast-paced environment with an energy level that is contagious. I have never worked with so many smart and talented individuals who are always willing to help each other out.
The company demands a lot from its employees, but in return it makes a concerted effort to compensate them well, hear their feedback and make Akamai a great place to work.

Cons

Like many high-growth companies, Akamai has its share of growing pains, particularly in the areas of processes, systems and communication. The company acknowledges them and has made a point of prioritizing the areas which need to be addressed in order for the company to continue to scale.

Advice to Management

Employees have been key to Akamai's success and will continue to be so in the future. Akamai's employees are willing to give 110% (and frequently do), so in my opinion it is critical that management continues to keep their thumb on the pulse and act on employee feedback.
