    I have been working at Akamai full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -if you are a beginner or have 2 to 4 years experience then OK to work here -then you will get suitable package -no dress code

    Cons

    -not a professional environment to work -only manager's pet will get good hike, promotion and budget for external certifications -product based company so, not much of technical exposure -if manager doesn't like you then you will be laid off easily

    Advice to Management

    A lot has to be changed regarding management especially in India. Need to hire more professional minded managers in India.

    Pros

    Great salary for a fresher.

    Cons

    Lack innovation in security space because of poor product management. A top-down approach is followed where no product manager ever listens to field teams. If you want to learn real security, this is not your place to be.

    I have been working at Akamai full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    From associates to sales staff, everyone seems to generally be well versed in content delivery and now cloud security due in part to the 2-4 months of training (whiteboards) you go through. Pay is very competitive if you can maintain top performer status and the culture is very supportive.

    Cons

    Movement within the company has slowed down and with recent layoffs, some groups may have lost some of that startup feel it had years ago. Some of the perks like group lunches and paid attendance at conferences seems to have gone away to try and appease investors which can leave employees with a sour taste

    Advice to Management

    Hire more developers so that new products don't take as long to come to market.

    I have been working at Akamai full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good CEO and awesome products. They have very strong technical teams. Technically inclined filled with rock stars! People are willing to help when needed. Alot of self service help you can get.

    Cons

    Horrendous regional leadership. Political culture. Not professional moving forward with policies and strategies. HR was not professional enough to help with human resourced related issues. Very dissatisfied with their way of handling the issue. Did not know that their handling of issues meant relaying messages from one person to another and assume then jump to conclusions.
