The  National Top Workplaces  list was determined solely by feedback gathered
through an objective  employee survey.  The survey was conducted by
WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, the leading on-demand employee survey provider, in
conjunction with 30 leading regional newspapers.  Akamai participated in  The
Boston Globe's  Top Workplaces 2012 program, and was named one of the  "Top
Places to Work, 2012"  among  Massachusetts  businesses.  Akamai ranked 14th 
among  Massachusetts' largest employers and was the highest-ranking software
company in the category.

The WorkplaceDynamics survey uses a proprietary set of 22 questions to rank
companies. The survey data showed that employees most want to work at 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.
