Senior Development Engineer in Test (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – 15 February 2018
Akamai is full of super smart, committed people that want to work hard building interesting technology. They also care about each other. There is a steep learning curve, but everyone there understands that.
Senior Performance Engineer II (Current Employee) – Bangalore Urban, Karnataka – 15 February 2018
Good benefits and employee friendly. Senior Management is present to just save their own seats. Hire and Fire policy is very much prevalent. Will waste money on other things rather than keeping an employee.
Manager, Marketin Programs (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – 13 February 2018
I love working here, the CEO is one of the best I've had the pleasure to work for so far. He is very smart and straight forward. If you are looking for a good workplace culture in the tech space then this is a great place.
Marketing Management tends to hire who they know first.
Manager (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – 8 February 2018
Akamai provides the opportunity to deal with a very complex Infrastructure with lots of moving parts that when they break can cause some serious problems to their large customer base. Best training if you ask me.
Accounting Manager (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – 29 January 2018
Typical day at work: operational, working with general ledgers, payroll, reviewing financials, mentoring staff members, working with equity, system integration. etc. I've learned a lot working with my VP Finance. Through the years, he's taught me a lot. He's one of the best managers I've worked for. I've learned equity, FAS123R, consolidations, WW payroll, M&A, commission administration, etc. most challenging part of the job is the communication. HQ is in Cambridge, and they lack communication across all departments.
Program Management Intern (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – 26 January 2018
Akamai has a great company culture where many people are supportive of you and are willing to help you. I learned a lot in my position and I was surrounded by very intelligent people. There are a lot of fun corporate events as an intern. The expectations were high as an intern and you were given projects and were expected to complete them well regardless of whether you were an intern or regular employee.
Senior Manager, EMEA Training & Enablement (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 18 January 2018
Akamai provides a canvas on which to build a career, offering opportunities across departments and territories. This is a company that does not stand still and strives to constantly improve process, technology and messaging. The team is exceptional, and the culture very inclusive.
Great culture but little opportunity for Solutions Architects
Solutions Architect (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – 3 January 2018
Great place to work. Better in the Engineering Organization. The professional services organization needs to be more collaborative with Engineering and allow the Solutions Architects to be more technical.
Just another employee (Current Employee) – Banglore, Karnataka – 28 December 2017
Great Company Good work life balance. Growth is a bit of a concern as you need to have great relationship with the hiring manager if you need a role, doesn't matter if you have worked in that division, but if the hiring manager and you are friends, then you will get the role.
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – 3 December 2017
Everyone is so smart. You have plenty of people to learn from. They are all willing to answer questions as long as you show a willingness to self-learn. They inspire curiosity and they provide a great way for you to advance in your career
