Good place to work as long as you are in the right team
Senior Solutions Architect (Current Employee) –  Bangalore, Karnataka20 July 2017
Nice place with good work culture, but you have to be in the right team to be happy. The services division isn't really the best place to be in if you are coming from a development background.

The best place to work
Senior Account Development Executive (Former Employee) –  Bangalore, Karnataka14 July 2017
Akamai Technologies was where I started my career. The most amazing workplace with some of the brightest minds in the industry. The level of competition was so high that we had to stay ahead of the game and that was a thrill to experience. Benefits and exposure was beyond my expectations and the clarity of your work being recognised and rewarded was exceptional. The management was top notch and we had easy access to reach out to anyone we felt like. I enjoyed every part of my job.
Pros
Everything you can think of at a place to work
Cons
Not too much

ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA5 July 2017
Akamai technologies is a great company to work for. They care about their workers and have a great atmosphere in their Santa Clara office. The people are nice and are generally talkative. My manager was amazing. She had that perfect balance of authority and confidant. The biggest draw back was how the main corporate office is in Cambridge, MA. It created problems in communication. I would love coming in to work everyday. The best part about Akamai is how they treat their workers. They are provided with things they need to accomplish their jobs and even provide break time fun like ping pong and pool tables, even video games.

The company may be the best of its kind around. But it would be even better if they cared about the people that worked there. the company is great elsewhere but when it comes to India the story is quite the contrary.
Cons
too many alert and too little people to handle them
