    Pros

    The company is wonderful in so many different aspects. From the organized and streamlined process (interview to on-boarding), the great culture, collaborative and engaging co-workers, etc. I feel honored to be a part of this team. We've got catered lunches 3x a week, breakfast 2x a week, great selection of snacks, (I haven't spent a dime since I started working here), commuter and wellness/fitness benefits, pet insurance (hello? even our pets are covered!), friendly co-workers (we all talk, collaborate, engage ourselves with each other), yoga, cooking classes, family room, Giants Games, etc. They put great value on their people for sure. There is also a work-life balance here. People leave can take time off when need be. Isn't that amazing? The product is also cutting edge. It's about social network these days and the software does so much with their customers' success.

    Cons

    Sometimes when a company is a large scale like this, the departments don't get to interact with each other. Some teams are factionalized which can cause a gap on communication.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps add more Company Events for the whole company (globally) so we can all meet and know each other.

    Pros

    Plenty of amenities and a great central location to help focus on work. Everybody is onboard with delivering products that customers are proud to use. Talent is very highly valued and people are great to work with.

    Cons

    With any organization over a certain size you lose familiarity with everybody and teams become factionalized, causing breakdowns in communications or misunderstandings in process. This is further compounded by a global presence where remote agents

    Advice to Management

    There have been some rocky patches in the past couple of years but I think more engagement internally with product roadmaps across all teams would benefit everybody greatly. There is a lot of knowledge that everybody brings to the table that can be utilized in new ways, so more time devoted to exploration/Labs/Hackathons would definitely benefit the company as a whole and strengthen it.

    Pros

    Pay very well for non-junior year internships (e.g. still have more than one year of school left)

    Cons

    There was a round of layoffs in the second-to-last week of my internship (yikes). It was a pretty dramatic week. Other than that I had a 100% positive experience.

    Advice to Management

    From an intern's perspective, I felt like the SF interns had much more comradery than the Austin interns. I know it is hard to improve that given the small amount of Austin interns and the lack of a true HR presence in Austin.

    Great to hear your feedback! We are expanding our Austin internship program to create more intern camaradery. Thanks for writing a review!

    Pros

    A lot can be told about a company by the people one meets. During the interview and recruiting process Lithium management demonstrated the values and vision of the company. Every level engaged allowing for greater viability into the organization as well as building trust.
    Lithium demonstrates it's capabilities as a global player while maintaining the vibrant and dynamic culture of an "established start-up".

    Cons

    As the company is in a period of rapid growth this will introduce it's own challenges.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows continue to maintain that "person" engagement with each new hire and retain the top talent that already exists within the company.

    Recent organisational changes has made it difficult to ramp up as fast as I would have liked but the change is clearly for the best and slowly getting there!
