(NASDAQ: LLNW), a Valley-based technology company employing more than 200 people in the Phoenix area, has been named to the 2010 "Best Places to Work" list published annually by the Phoenix Business Journal. Ranked in the top twenty in the region for its category, Limelight Networks was recognized for the quality of its workplace environment, employee support, leadership direction, corporate culture, and management practices.
The "Best Places to Work" list, which was started in 2003, is compiled from surveys distributed to employees in businesses throughout the Phoenix area.

Limelight Networks was listed in the Medium-Sized Companies category, with an increase in employee numbers over 2009.
"For the second year in a row we're proud to be ranked as a Best Place to Work by our own employees," said David Hatfield, Senior Vice President, Limelight Networks. "As our numbers continue to grow, we are dedicated to providing an engaging and supportive environment that allows our employees to grow professionally, and encourages passion, camaraderie, and innovation in the work we do. This is a primary reason why we have decided to move our global headquarters to the Tempe Gateway building, which will offer larger, state-of-the-art facilities for our employees."
