Pros

Very smart peopl. Very complex problems. New exciting technology. Lots of customer feedback and interaction

Cons

akamai is very stingy about compensation.They say that they are less competitive on salary and more competitive on bonuses but it seems they are not competitive in either case.

 akamai has very isolated groups and each of them are very high performance. I have seen extremely less interaction among groups.
Groups/teams themselves are very less collaborative and thrive on individual performers. If you are someone who thrives on group effort this is not a place for you. You need to be solely competent who can work in a very fast paced environment and needs to be able to perform.

Advice to Management

increase compensation
