Lots of potential in a growing space. Overall great place to work.

Software Engineer (Current Employee) Emeryville, CA

Pros* Great learning environment. Anyone can fairly easily move amongst teams and work with whatever they want to learn
* Friendly people. Everyone is extremely helpful. You never have to be afraid of not being able to complete your task due to being unfamiliar with the code
* Free snacks, drinks, food, whatever. Very healthy options too
* Very chill management. They are usually very cool with people working from home and are very flexible in terms of accommodating your schedule
* Near the public market, which has a lot of great food options.
* Near one of best universities, UC Berkeley.
* Easily accessible by Bart(emery-go-round), Amtrak, and easy parking.

Cons* Too much legacy code with very little emphasis put on refactoring and improving existing code base
* Interview standards way too low. Knowing basic data structures are optional in some cases.
* Too much overhead in scrum process. (too many meaningless meetings that hinder productivity)
* Been at lithium for a long time and so far, management has been extremely un-proactive in terms of rewarding employees

Advice to Senior Management* Stricter Interviewing. In order to attract the best, we need to have the best.
* Reward your employees more. At least according to my friends, I am being paid significantly below market.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
