Best company I've ever worked for

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Services Director in Emeryville, CA
Current Employee - Services Director in Emeryville, CA

I have been working at Lithium Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great people, great opportunities. Lithium recognizes and promotes talent. Many of the best people stay with the company long term, making for excellent long lasting work relationships. The work is interesting and challenging and there is always plenty of it (which, in this economy, isn't a bad thing). It's also a great industry to work in right now, and Lithium is positioned to really make a difference in a lot of people's lives, making it easier for our customers to interact meaningfully with their own customers.

Cons

The company sometimes "forgets" their remote staff, leaving them out of some opportunities that office staff enjoy, without finding comparable activities/rewards for them.

Salaries should be reviewed on a more regular basis.

Lithium is sometimes a little slow to identify and deal with problem staff members.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fail fast should a rule used with staff. You can usually tell pretty quickly if people fit the culture and have good work ethics. If they don't, let's not wait 6 months to a year to start taking appropriate actions. Sure it's hard to hire and fire, but it's also hard for staff to work with employees who don't carry their weight for long periods of time.

    • Career Opportunities

    I have been working at Lithium Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Excellent life/work balance: Flexible work hours and a lot of parties.
    - Paid Volunteer Time Off (VTO): I am encouraged to volunteer at any philanthropic organization of my choice during office hours and still get paid.
    - Very strong sale team. Engineering leaderships are young, smart and energetic.
    - Pre IPO and the market is still growing
    - Lot of foods and snacks

    Cons

    - Complex products require the most brilliant engineers just to get them maintained.
    - CEO focuses on long term success by building a multi generation company, so it is unlikely to get rich quick here.
    - Huge competitions in a red hot market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please move the office to San Francisco ASAP.
