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

    Pros

    - Amazing growth opportunity. It's very easy to visualize a career path with this company
    - You have the ability to learn an abundant amount of information on the job
    - The team is amazing; culture
    - Surrounded by intelligence
    - Free food - legit deli style sandwiches, soups, sodas, and much more
    - Enterprise environment. This isn't a mom and pop company or a startup.
    - Truly the best company I have worked for to date. They really have something amazing going on in the NOC.

    Cons

    - Clam chowder was served too infrequently. As far as the NOC goes, I believe this to be the common consensus, however, I can't speak for the rest of the company, but I imagine they would agree.

    Advice to Management

    - More clam chowder

    Pros

    The people are always friendly, upbeat and willing to help you in any way that they can. There is just a great atmosphere at this company - which is sometimes difficult to find!

    Cons

    Really can't think of any - other than all the free food in the FREE Deli on site has succeeded in making me put on a few extra pounds.

    Advice to Management

    Continue encouraging great behaviors and don't forget to say thank you for doing a great job! As the One Minute Manager used to say - Always LOOK for the good and correct the bad - in private!

    Pros

    Very friendly environment, always feel welcomed. Free food/parking. Upper Management is always keeping us in the loop about what's going on, they seem very eager to keep the company moving in the right direction towards growth. I'm always left feeling valued and like my voice counts, which makes going to work easier every day.

    Cons

    No cons to share, this is a cool company to work for, if you work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, I'm glad to be apart of the team.

    A wonderful company to work for. Leaving this company was one of the hardest professional decisions I had to make.

    There has been a change of management and I hear the company is in a maintain mode and not really growing

    Pros

    Cool technology, fast paced, easy work.

    Cons

    Really bad management, new management is replaced every 5 months, low budgets, won't pay for tools needed to get the job done, won't listen to employees ideas, people are mean and it's an overrated company. Their stock is doing really bad and will never improve.

    Advice to Management

    Get some managers that have actually worked with the technologies they are managing.

    Pros

    The Free Deli Food
    Cool Building and View

    Cons

    Content Delivery has been a Commodity for some time, Limelight has virtually no ability to differentiate in the marketplace
    Poor go to market strategy - virtually no Product / Sales alignment
    Marketing just re-brands or re-packages the messaging every 6-12 months, same outdated hardware drives the network

    Advice to Management

    act like you actually care about the humans that are hired to fulfill the role. Execs seem to be focused on saying or doing whatever needed to simply get the stock above 5 bucks a share, so they can finally cash something out

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn and grow,
    The leadership has made tons of effort to make the company better and stay in the market strongly.

    Cons

    Still, better/more organized process needed in many ways.
    Benefits for international employees are not that great.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to international employees especially in APAC.
    Need to present better pictures on how to stay in the market
