Akamai is one of the best places to work in Massachusetts according to The Boston Globe's "Top Places to Work in 2013" survey. Akamai placed sixth in the "largest employers" category, moving up eight spots from last year, and was listed among the highest-ranking technology companies overall in the state.
Employees from our Cambridge, Mass., headquarters were among nearly 76,000 respondents to a survey commissioned by The Boston Globe. To help determine the rankings, the survey considered six key factors related to employee happiness: company direction, execution, employee connection, work load and responsibility, management, and pay and benefits.
Organizations need to offer quality career growth opportunities and the ability to "work with good, smart people," Jim Gemmell, Akamai's chief human resources officer, told The Boston Globe during an executive roundtable. The conversation included four technology leaders discussing their respective recruitment techniques and workplace culture.
Robert Hughes, president of worldwide operations for Akamai, called it a "tremendous honor" for Akamai to maintain its place as one of Massachusetts' top employers and considered it a "true testament to those who work here." He said the continued acknowledgement validates Akamai's efforts to provide exceptional experiences for employees as well as customers.
