Opower: Software With a Purpose

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsThe people are awesome. Every single employee I have worked with is top notch, never settling for less than the best. The mission is also incredibly motivating. Engineers can build software at many companies, but few offer the satisfaction that your work helps an important cause. In addition, DC is a great place to live.

ConsThere are no obvious cons with Opower. The best one I can think of is a less than fully formed career advancement program. Opower is a small company, so it hasn't established or standardized how to get opportunities to move up in the company. Some departments are more ahead than others in this.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Be less… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
