I worked at Akamai full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Reputable company, great colleagues and work life balance. Competitive compensation, 401k matching, decent health/dental benefits, RSU, bonus, flexible time off and work from home policy.

Cons

Limited product vision and politics. Career advancement within teams can be challenging with low turn over in senior staff.

Advice to Management

More mentoring less managing.
