    I have been working at Opower full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This place is the best. Not too big, not too small. Enough structure that you aren't lost, but not so much that you are prevented from taking chances/suggesting and implementing process changes. Its a very open environment and people are extremely generous with their time and knowledge - if you're interested in learning about something else that's going on at the company, you have every opportunity to do so. Tons of inter-departmental transfers from techops to eng or sales to marketing (and vice versa), so employee growth and opportunity are really stressed.

    Cons

    No 401(k) match, which is unfortunate... but given the stage of the company, it isn't too surprising - plus, even post-IPO, they are still pretty generous with equity grants

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mostly keep doing what you're doing! President and CEO have felt a little absent due to their travel schedules, so getting to see them more would be nice (monthly Q&As are a tradition that sort of fell off but seem to be making a resurgence)

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Opower.

    Interview Details

    Head hunter reached out via LinkedIn. Phone interviews with prospective Manager, SVP of Sales and then in-person interviews. In-person on-site interviews consisted of presentation followed by individual intensive interviews x 5 including meeting with company founder. The volume of interviews and questions on a single day was pretty tiring!

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too challenging. Standard questions for role. Performance to date. Deals you've won. Deals you've lost. What you would do differently. Asked to dissect a deal that Opower previously lost etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
