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

Pros

There are many technologies in place so there are always opportunities to learn new things. The management staff is encouraging and always willing to listen to suggestions for improvement. The environment is casual and very conducive to creativity. Even though the company is always growing it still has a small company feel with great teamwork visible everywhere.

Cons

It is a smaller company so opportunities for promotions occur less frequently than at some larger companies. Management seems to have the "it's not what you know but who you know" attitude towards some purchases and hiring decisions.

Advice to Management

Encourage more interaction between groups surrounding evaluation, purchasing and implementation of software / solutions, possibly create a steering committee. Sometimes purchasing decisions are made in a silo so things are put into production without feedback from other groups that are affected.

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

    Pros

    Working with one of the best high performance computing platforms on a day to day basis. The company has some of the best engineers in the industry. The ability to learn something new everyday is wonderful for a growing employee/career. The flexibility of hours allows for greater performance from employees along with meeting personal needs. Team work along with individual work. Work hard and get rewarded.

    Deli is better then subway, variety of snacks, soups, make your own concoction. Always ready to fuel the employees.

    Cons

    After working at many different places, this is one place that if there is a complaint take it up with upper management to get it corrected. Management is very proactive about complaints and correcting the cons. From my previous place of employment this is a dream career come true.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging the employees to work hard.
