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

Pros

- You get to work towards a good cause
- Smart, engaged employees who are also mission driven
- Good product, market leader
- Perfect mid size-company, recently filed for IPO
- Zero micro-management, if you're self-driven you'll enjoy it here

Cons

- No hand-holding, expected to hit the ground running
- Slow and thorough hiring and interview process, which is being revised

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work, maintain the focus of the company as a mission driven clean-tech company, and not just another SaaS provider

    Pros

    Extremely smart people - I learned so much from the people I work with.
    Laid back environment - No dress code, dogs in the office, ping pong table, video games, seated massage Wednesdays, free lunch Fridays ....
    Reasonably competitive pay.

    Cons

    People can get very highly opinionated.
    As the company grows larger, the fun things that were once considered important to the company are getting lost.

    Pros

    Hi
    Benefits are decent and the pay is around or above market value for the area. Most employees are pretty friendly and laid back. Work is interesting and challenging. Management is pretty tech savvy. Just like a MNC companies like IHI E&C International Corporation.

    Cons

    I think Not too much interaction between different teams.
