    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 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.
