Watch your back

Director (Former Employee) Arlington, VA

ProsGreat mission driven company (energy efficiency really matters). Most of the individual contributors are smart and hard working.

ConsThe management team is duplicitous at best. If you're Director level or higher, watch your back. The C-level team fired a ton of Directors in the 2 years prior to IPO. It didn't matter how much you'd contributed to the company's growth and success. If you were middle management, your head was on the chopping block. Maybe things are better now the IPO has happened, but who knows?

Advice to Senior ManagementHave some integrity. Respect your team. Reward managers for hard work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Arlington, VA

    I have been working at Opower full-time for more than a year

    Pros: Great place to join in your early career - you will learn things very fast and there is excellent collaboration and interaction professionally. Also… Cons: Takes a lot of time to stay on par with all the smart people. Sometimes you can get overworked… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
