    I worked at Lithium Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Strong momentum in a somewhat unique space - despite recent entrants from large companies such as Salesforce, the Lithium Community platform has some unique characteristics...
    - Some really talented and dedicated people in the trenches
    - Unique position to lead the industry toward emergence of the 'customer voice' as a leading influencer of purchase intention
    - great location, building, atmosphere

    Cons

    - overhang of recent acquisitions... you have to assume there was a strong vision from exec team (CEO and board) about how the combined entity of Klout and Lithium would come together with the sum being greater than the parts... but whatever that vision was - it is non-existent at the executive and strategy level... Now having potentially overpaid for it - CEO and team are desperate to show something... square peg - round hole...
    - Corp strategy in constant shift... ask each exec "what is Lithium?" and you'll get a different answer. Ask "lithium is the best in the world at..." and it will become a 5-10 sentence attempt at an answer...
    - engineering ratio (product - not ops or service) to overall employees is embarrassing low for a company at this stage and of this size...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Get exec team aligned on what the company wants to be in 3-5 years... paint that picture in a way that it can be explained to customer in 3 minutes or less...preferably less... now remove anything form the company discussion that doesn't point in that direction including recent acquisitions if that's where the chips fall...
    2. CEO - stop trying to be a certain type of CEO, it's transparent - like you're playing a role, just use your experience to be a good leader.
    3. CEO and Exec Team - don't believe you have to be or are the smartest person in the room - most of the time you're not; you can't be - your role requires you to be a generalist. There's a wealth of intelligence under you - leverage it. If you don't believe that, fix it. Your roles are to create an atmosphere where the hundreds of smart people in the org can independently apply their skills... set the strategy and get out of the way... it's not about you and your status, it's about the company succeeding.
    4. Treat people within the org as intelligent adults... ex: if you modify the company financial structure - explain it transparently, in detail, and with conviction - 95% of the company can understand it as well as you can... it's not rocket science... don't think of yourself as a privileged rocket scientist...
    5. Remove the GM role from the CMO - while it's a nice nod to her contributions, it confuses the entire organizational relationships and related strategies... it's a nice gesture to one person at the expense of clarity across the entire organization - a very strong indication of leadership style and decision making
