    Pros

    Opower is not perfect but it's a company that has fun, believes in its product and attracts great people. I quickly learned how to adapt i a results-driven environment; if you're not comfortable juggling competing priorities and being kept on your toes, this isn't the place for you. The collaborative work culture is awesome - every single employee is willing to help and extend their expertise. Great mission, too! Other perks: catered lunches, weekly massages, semi-annual "Innovation Days," generous PTO policy, can bring your dog to the office, etc...

    Cons

    There have been a number of re-orgs lately (read: management shifts), which have been awkward. All signs point to things improving soon, though.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Opower.

    Interview

    One week after application, got an email from a recruiter. Scheduled an appointment with her for a call, but she completely forgot her appointment. Had to reschedule and she called me 10 mins after the scheduled interview time. While interviewing with her she also put me on hold. Never had an interview as unprofessional as this one. i did not feel like they valued my time.
