    I have been working at Akamai full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting technical work at a healthy relevant company in the middle of the Internet. Management seems to be pointed in the right direction. Flexible work hours, time off and telecommute.

    Cons

    Lots of legacy code, challenging to learn as documentation is often poor. Change comes slow relative to a smaller company, as there is a fear something will break

    Advice to Management

    bite the bullet and let some of these old systems go.
