    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 ManagementAdvice

    * 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.

    Positive Outlook

    great people
    good culture
    excellent location for those no living in the peninsula

    Cons

    management is clueless
    there is no vision
    it is all about flashy stuff, no substance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get a clue about the competition, the market, and the product and set a new goal for the company. it is not about the past, it is about the future now.
