The National Top Workplaces list was determined solely by feedback gathered
through an objective employee survey. The survey was conducted by

conjunction with 30 leading regional newspapers. Akamai participated in The
Boston Globe's Top Workplaces 2012 program, and was named one of the "Top

among Massachusetts' largest employers and was the highest-ranking software

companies with high levels of organizational health. Companies that set a
clear direction for their future; execute well; and bring real meaning to work
are the healthiest, according to WorkplaceDynamics.
