I have been working at Akamai as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

nice colleagues, nice environment.
my manager is not too pushy. my work is building up embedded system to monitor the datacenter.

Cons

few talks between others.
hardware group is too small, and the company is for software.
so most time our group is working on how to solve others problem,we have no our own harware products

Advice to Management

talk more and give suggestions more to each other

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Above the average benefit. Unlimited PTO as long as your manager approves. Great work-life balance. Great company outlook. Smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Collaboration between different teams is sometimes difficult. Not the best perks for continuing education (~$5000 per year). Company does not get much mass reputation because it's been very low-key in this industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your good work. Tom Leighton as the CEO has been really awesome.
