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

Pros

Lithium is definitely a career highlight for me and is a fantastic place to work! Now that the Headquarters is right in the heart of San Francisco (225 Bush), the vibe and swanky digs adds to the appeal of what is still a thriving start-up culture. The executive team is among the best I've ever seen and Lithium as a whole is on a path of tremendous success.

After a successful acquisition of Social Dynamx, Lithium has a great crew in Austin, Texas as another center of excellence. The culture fit and team in Austin is great to work with!

Cons

Lithium is not a place for "coasters". Very much a start-up pace and the expectations are based on an environment of high-performance. This is good if you are looking for a career challenge and not the status quo. This is not so good if you are just looking for just a paycheck.

Advice to Management

Maintain and uphold the corporate value of "be real" at all times.

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

    Pros

    Well funded. Perfectly positioned. Long established and high name recognition customer list, but still small enough to make a difference.

    Cons

    If you love a large company, highly structured environment, this is not your place.

    I worked at Lithium Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * great demand for Lithium community in social customer space
    * no real competitors
    * you don't have to work hard to be successful in this company as long as you are in a good relationship with the management

    Cons

    * processes for processes sake. HR runs this company.
    * lack of real competition is good for sales but it also means there is no interesting work to do, because customers don't have anything to compare Lithium to. And Lithium doesn't innovate unless told to do so by its customers.
    * hours are not flexible at all. Enormous amount of meetings/number of managers in the company means engineers have to be in the office at all times. And at Lithium meetings/managers' satisfaction is way more important than real work.
    * Weak middle management is causing real damage by interrupting cross team communication and communication between the team and higher management. Poor management also causes employees demotivation/talent departure.
    * Engineering salaries are way below average.
    * Last but not the least, Lithium became this only after the era of Rob Tarkoff had begun. It could be the way any pre-IPO company has to operate to be successful. But I would strongly discourage anyone with start up background from joining this company because most likely you are not going to be happy here.

    Advice to Management

    looks like the management is happy, so not sure they need my advice.
