Pros

At Lithium you can see a problem, figure out a solution, and solve it. Most companies can't claim this.

Cons

Being at startup pace often the middle management pieces are dropped. Self guided careers are necessary here.

Advice to Management

Keep investing in your employees and listening to them... they are right!

    Pros

    Lithium has been in business for over 10 years. That means they are doing something right. You can't last through the recession if you're not delivering value to companies. That said when you're transitioning as an organization, it's never a smooth path. As far as I can tell, they are making the right and necessary steps to do this. Of course a lot of people will 'armchair quarterback' their advice for the management team, but honestly, Rob is doing a great job. This is a fun place to work, it is growing, it is successful, it can raise a lot of capital, and it has great people. It is also at the front of an industry. Most companies do not have that set of attributes.

    Cons

    Like all growing companies, Lithium is learning how to become bigger in a way that lets them retain some of the personality that has made them a great place to work. We are space constrained, but that is changing this year. We do need to work on how people are developed, that is tricky at small companies but they are making steps in that direction.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    1. On path to be GREAT now that Rob Tarkoff came from Adobe as CEO
    2. Very hot market and Lithium has much potential to own market
    3. Rob Tarkoff bringing 1st class top professionals to the company
    3. Customers are the best and biggest companies
    4. Cool product
    5. No dress code

    Cons

    1. Some old management not up to standard
    2. Second rate marketing does not help us sell
    3. Most VP managers are mediocre. Open secret but no one fixes it.
    3. Some departments very political but many are not
    4. Terrible office space. Bad commute and neighborhood
    5. Managers that have been there longer are small company type but think they are the best.
    6. Benefits only average.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring the best. Help the mediocre management that has been there too long to leave. Don't be afraid to ignore politics and clean house. If you ignore smoke screens that some top management uses to protect their reports it is easy to identify people who should not be managers.
