Best job I've had

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at Limelight Networks full-time for less than a year

ProsThe culture of the Seattle office is second to none. Everyone's working together to make great products. We have almost no conflict between engineering, management, product and sales.

You might not believe this, but as a software team, we get to spend the time we need to deliver high quality, maintainable software, rather than rushed, buggy crap. Both product management and sales respect the engineering team's recommendations and only occasionally oversell / overcommit.

ConsSome of the company policies coming from HQ can introduce unnecessary overhead around things like machine acquisition and deployments, but even this is kept in check by excellent management.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue growing toward the more agile, less process driven ways of doing things. Follow the lead of the Seattle office to develop a collaborative, trust-based environment throughout the entire company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
