I worked at Opower full-time

Pros

You can feel good that the work you do helps people save energy, and through that, helps protect the natural environment.

Cons

A lot of mediocre managers, no real career path/growth/opportunities, no real HR department, no 401(k) match, unimpressive salaries and stock options, very little diversity, headquarters is in suburban Virginia.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more grown-ups who know how to inspire, motivate, and manage staff. Be less passive-aggressive when working assumptions are challenged. Add women/people of color/gays to your all-male management team.

    Pros

    culture is fun and exciting, its a company that is very clearly about so much more than making a profit, it has a mission you can actually get behind. best group of people to work with.

    Cons

    there is so much work to be done that its hard to know when to stop some days...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to keep the level of open communication as much of a reality as we continue to grow as you have for the last five years
