Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Limelight Networks full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Some good people, not overly tight on expenses and travel, Tempe location and offices are great. Company is well positioned with what should be a weak major competitor.

Cons

Cronyism - senior executives take care of themselves with very little concern for others. Management is always being distracted by some shiny light and fails to address problems with the core business.

Advice to Management

Fix the core business - you've got a well architectured network that can be a competitive threat to AKAM if you execute. Not sure if you really know what you are getting into in the SaaS business.

    I worked at Limelight Networks full-time

    Pros

    - Some decent people
    - Some products are good (via acquisition)
    - Fun co-workers

    Cons

    - Management (up to the top) are not trustworthy. Lots of people believe they've been lied too (especially around commissions)
    - Can't keep good people around. Bought some good companies, but the people all leave as soon as they are able to.
    - Most of the products are terrible. Customers unhappy.
    - Stock is going into the toilet.
    - Poor leadership. They pay themselves well, but overall pay is terrible.
    - Company just can't execute
    - People are burnt out. Folks are worked hard, then discarded.
    - Some talented people, buts lots of 'B' and 'C' players.
    - Problems are well known inside the company, but nothing ever changes or improves.
