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

Pros

This is a fast paced, smart double bottom line company with a solid company culture that values innovation, rapid problem solving, quirky humor, and individual and collaborative contributions:
- "A" players / top-notch hires
- location
- solid benefits / care for their employees (equity, stocked organic kitchens / food, weekly massages, very flexible WFH policy, dogs in the office, regular company sponsored HH, events and outings, paid training, seminars, etc.)
- plentiful growth and development opportunities
- regular feedback and visible quarterly goals in addition to annual reviews
- connection to your work and visible impact of contributions
- positive, motivated and enthusiastic work environment / awesome company culture
- visible and accessible management and upper management (including the founders)

Cons

- Intimidating / drawn-out recruitment process (not for the faint of heart)
- The egos that occasionally come with "A" players are tiresome
- Most people struggle to find a work/life balance

    Pros

    Amazing work, mission, people, success, growth

    Cons

    Culture is a litte SF hipster at the office, there are a few suburban types, but for the most part it's definitely a "cool guys" place

    Opower: Software With a Purpose

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    There 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.
