Thank God I work here!

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Arlington, VA

ProsFor me it's the following:

* Best group of people I've worked with. I'm constantly learning new things everyday. This keeps things interesting.
* Doing something that's good for the world.
* It's a great work environment - we don't take ourselves too seriously.
* Really excited with the way this company is going. With the IPO, new clients signing on, etc.

I've worked in over 7 companies and more as a consultant, and I have never found a place I've loved more than Opower.

ConsYou have to up your game, and not everyone is willing to do this.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you've been doing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
