    Pros

    Akamai is a great company that is poised for continued growth and relevance in an increasingly connected world.

    Cons

    Heavy USA bias doesn't always lend itself to working with other countries. Processes are not consistent and can hinder productivity especially when working cross functionally and across non USA territories.

    Advice to Management

    Despite the career conversations that happen through the annual appraisal process, it doesn't feel like the feedback is taken seriously when trying to move within Akamai.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Akamai (Paris (France)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Entretien téléphonique avec mon futur manager puis l'équipe. Préparation d'un white board sur les solutions Akamai basé sur la documentation en ligne disponible. Bureaux très cools, équipe sympathique. Je recommande :)
