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

    Pros

    -> Smart and intelligent people. Cannot stress more about it, amazed at how much you can learn everyday.
    -> Great technologies and industry exposure
    -> Complete independence and ownership of work.

    Cons

    -> India is still primarily looked as a center to get work done at low cost to company and not as a center of excellence though they are a lot of brilliant individuals here equally good as their foriegn counterparts.
    -> India HR policies and rest of the world policies are very different and attempt to highlight this is always greeted with the standard response of "India policy is inline with present Industry standards in India"
    -> Very low visibility atleast as part of the Professional Services team at Bangalore. Hardly any Rewards and Recognition compared to rest of the world.
    -> Primarily a Sales driven organization. If you want to make a lot of money and get frequent rewards you have to be in Sales!
    -> Getting a promotion might not always be about your work. Sometimes you need to have a good relationship with the right people.

    Advice to Management

    1. Akamai is now a global company. Act like one with internal stakeholders as well, the world does not revolve around North America!
    2. Sales is just another organization within the company. Agree sales gets the revenue in but every other organization is just as equal a contributor to Akamai's success.
    3. India Management really needs a change of guard, a strong charismatic visionary leadership.
