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

    Pros

    Fast paced, global, absolutely cutting edge technology. Company is growing like crazy.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is impossible. Impossible to say "no"; expectation is to just keep layering more work on with no end in site. Immature executives in the VP level, everyone escalates right to the top.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the middle management/executive team to make the right decisions. Please stop the escalations if you don't like the answer. Tiring and does not embody that we hold people accountable to make the right decisions.

    I have been working at Akamai full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work from home (Akamai Anywhere)
    Time off program (no set number of vacation days, just get it approved by your manager)
    Overall a smart work force with interesting projects
    Pretty good benefits

    Cons

    Career path is not always clear
    Generally they'll pay you as little as you can, need to be aggressive about pay bumps.
    Benefits are alright, but some other high tech companies in the area are definitely better
