"Akamai would be improved by a zero tolerance policy on sexual harassment and reviewing the feedback it gives to women aiming at leadership roles. There can be markers in these areas that show an unconscious bias. Also - in terms of leadership culture - they do a lot to train the front lines of management - while spending less effort working on clarifying the duties of upper level leaders and their organizations - so as a woman IC and middle manager - you'll rise, but it's not common to hit this gap in the middle where you don't seem to "feel" like a manager to that upper tier, and so you're not going to go anywhere in your career."

"It can be a great place to work depending on your team, and the culture is meant to be inclusive and open. Like many places, there may be shortcomings there, but I do feel there are efforts being made to promote women and people of color."

"There is a great disparity in the amount of telecommuting that is permitted for men and women in some groups. My group is terrible in this regard. While I was here my over-fifty female boss was fired for things that do not result in the same outcome for male managers. Another over-fifty female co-worker was fired as well. Meanwhile, a male manager who managed to drive away five of his six senior staff was not fired and merely demoted to Principal SDET. My new boss is a man and the new QA director is also a man despite the great field of women in this company who are QA managers who would have made amazing Directors."
"Typical tech company - a lot of women working but mostly in support roles. C-level is comprised of all white dudes. The good news is the company recognizes this and is making an honest effort to change but little to show for it so far."
