Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

If you do not care about your job and are really good at keeping quiet, this is a great place to melt the years away.

Cons

Too many to list, HR issues at every turn. Mid-level managers are of no help to you. Do not ever say a single word about anything or you'll certainly be sorry.

Advice to Management

HR needs a major overhaul.

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

    Pros

    Smart people, excellent compensation packages, flexible work hours and locations, competent management that know what they are doing, and how to grow the company, lots of career growth opportunity.

    Cons

    Product development moves slow. Product groups operate in silos, and should be forced to work together. Process to define sales quotas needs to be reviewed/fixed. Pricing and product structure needs an overhaul. Not all offices are the same (The SF office is WAY nicer than some of the others, like NYC).

    Advice to Management

    Pointed in the right direction, so keep doing what you are doing!
