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

Pros

Rapid growth. Akamai essentially owns the scalable Internet. As the world comes online, Akamai's fortunes and your career opportunities rise with it.

Cons

The value-add services are interesting, but Akamai's bread and butter is acceleration and CDN. For most techies, the problems you solve at Akamai (make a website or video faster and scale against DDoS) are not particularly satisfying.
