Some other common adjectives that are used with "extremely" are:
extremely high/low (for a number or amount, not for actual height)
This is a set phrase that you can use to talk about someone that you like working with. You can write this about a coworker, a client, or an employer in places like recommendation letters.

He is an absolute pleasure to work with.
