    I have been working at Lithium Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)


    Today is my last day at Lithium and it's been the privilege of my life to have spent the last eight years of my professional career here. Never would I have guessed the career trajectory I experienced when starting out as a bright-eyed CSM jumping into the world of enterprise SaaS. Lithium has a solid suite of products the dynamic space of digital customer experience with amazing customer brands who love us. Best of all Lithium has awesome people who care about our customers, are passionate about their success, and have the expertise to ensure the value Lithium brings. Lithium grew 5X in my time here and every stage of growth brought the right folks with the appropriate experience/background to help take the company to the next level. I've also seen countless colleagues level up their own skills and make multiple career jumps and promotions in line with the company's maturity. I was lucky enough to be tapped to play a charter role in establishing our APAC presence in SE Asia/ANZ and it goes without saying it was a wild but memorable ride seeing the world and leveling up my experience in sales. Throughout my tenure I've been treated with respect and leadership has always operated with integrity - even today with the whole exit process. I don't see that core culture of Lithium changing anytime soon and with the Vista acquisition the company enters a new stage of growth backed by additional capital, expertise, and talent experienced in taking things to yet another level. Lithium is a great company, a great place to work, and I highly recommend it without reservation.


    As with any company, growing pains at different stages of the company's maturity. Professional Services and Customer Support were two very solid pillars of strength that made Lithium successful but have seen those areas erode slightly over the years.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Lithium Technologies (Bengaluru (India)) in June 2017.


    There were a total of 4 rounds: 2 technical, 1 managerial-cum-technical and 1 HR.In the first round, I was given a requirement and asked to write code to achieve the requirement. Later I was asked questions about the code that I had written. In the 2nd round, I was given some scenarios and had to use whiteboard to write pseudo-code. There were some algorithm questions at the end of the round. 3rd round started with managerial discussion with the director of engineering. At the end of the discussion, I was given a fairly complex graph problem to solve. Last round was HR discussion and I got a very broad of company history and its products. The whole interview experience was seamless and fun.
