I worked at Akamai as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Intelligent co-workers, great location, autonomy (even as an intern), flexible work schedule, good compensation, large range of technology (my team worked with many types of programming languages). The intern program had many opportunities to meet some of the top directors of the company.

Cons

Intern program had limited opportunities to network with the other interns. Stressful at times during large deadlines. Office space can be cramped on certain floors.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.
