What do you like best about the leadership team?

Leadership Reviews

They trust their team and hence offer a lot of freedom to their employees

Posted 16 days ago

Open communication, Honesty and Integrity

Authentic, employee focused. Committed to employee career development.

Leaders are working with sleeves rolled up together with the team. Providing a safe environment to the team members to work independently and creatively. Giving appropriate guidances when the team needed them.

Review from Sales Dept

Deep industry knowledge, commitment to Akamai's success

What does the leadership team need to get better at?

Leadership Reviews

Provide proper training... please update Akamai University content

There is very little leading from the leadership team. Corporate strategy and mission do not translate in a concrete way to work tasks. Honest appraisal is lacking, all communications from leadership are relentlessly optimistic. Nothing ever goes wrong per those at the top.

Review from Engineering Dept

Think something else but money

Review from Sales Dept

More agility. Listen to engineering ranks more.

Review from Sales Dept

What do your coworkers need to improve and how could you work together better?

Team Reviews

They don't share thier knowledge to new bee to grow and learn ..too much micro management by mentor and manager..They don't co- oprate at all. To much politics within team and biased behaviour.

Akamai is a very competitive environment. Most coworkers are insecure in their positions and relentless seek to undermine colleagues.

Review from Engineering Dept

Show some interest on what they are doing

Review from Sales Dept

company is very slow to make decisions and not many people take ownership of key decisions - simple processes are made extremely complicated -

What is most positive about the culture and environment at your company?

Environment Reviews

The flexibility we have been offered is one of the best

Posted 16 days ago

Akamai is employee centric organisation where we have a flex based model implemented and employees concerns are top priority for management

Posted a month ago

Some of the benefits and compensation programs

No fixed desk policy so we integrate well

Accepting we are human and can make mistakes. Helping each others when we needed the most

Review from Sales Dept

What needs to change to make the company culture better?

Environment Reviews

There is no communication or leadership. Plans are not communicated. There is zero opportunity to work with colleagues on something that is not directly billable to a customer. No team collaboration or group learning.

Review from Engineering Dept

For remote workers, the draconian travel policy. The company is concentrated in Cambridge, MA, but if you are remote, you are never allowed to travel there, ever, per the travel policy.

Review from Sales Dept

More efficient, faster decisions, dont wait for the competition to come and eat your lunch

What did you like most about the interview process?

Interviews Reviews

They were patient and made me comfortable

Posted 16 days ago

Learnings and discussion and greetings

Getting to present to the whole team (that i would be working with)

Met people across teams and product lines for wider perspective

What would you improve about your company's interview process?

Interviews Reviews

It is up to the manager to decide the number of steps involved in the interview. HR should provide them more guidance

Should have made by professionals

Review from Sales Dept

What makes you most happy at work?

Outlook Reviews

The confidence and trust of the leadership

Posted 16 days ago

culture and employee friendly environment

Posted a month ago

It would make me happy if we could accomplish more in less time

Finding the right solution for a customer, feels so satisfying

Working for a company that is purpose-driven, customer obsessed, that values employees.

What's going wrong and how can it be improved?

Outlook Reviews

Higher management please grow up and trust employee..not only manager comment.

Akamai is still leveraging its original idea from two decades ago. It is becoming commoditized and Akamai has no ability to innovate or create new products.

Review from Engineering Dept

Can't. The company should go a deep reorganisation process

Review from Sales Dept

There is no innovation, in general it is poorly managed, and there is no responsibility or accountability for overall strategy across verticals. Improvement would be greater investment in original development, more and more empowered managers, and an office focused on cross-company strategy.

Review from Sales Dept
