Managment is friendly and cooperative. Offers variety of health insurances and other benefits

EmployeeWorked at Akamai Technologies in Kambridge, FL at the time of review.

What I like

Akamai has great corporate culture and is a great environment to grow and thrive in. I started less than six years ago as a contracted marketing coordinator and I'm now a manager with more chances to grow ahead of me. My work is very challenging and for the most part, I feel super valued by my boss and upper management. Stress can be high and work/life balance sometimes difficult, but I feel it's worth it

What I dislike

I think they need to be more honest with their employees ahead of time regarding changes and reorganizations

Suggestions for improvement

Culture is great and everyone is welcome at my employer - I wouldn't change a thing
