OPOWER -- hyper-growth cash flow positive startup having a hugely positive impact on the environment.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsOPOWER has a terrific culture, a great mission, and is a fun place to work. We're growing like crazy, and we're doing so by having a strong positive impact on emissions. As we grow past one hundred employees tens of millions in revenue, we're providing the same emissions reduction as 1/3 of the entire US solar industry.

ConsIt's a startup, so you have to be willing to roll up your sleeves and solve problems from the ground up. Very little is spoon fed here -- you have to own your work and take responsibility for the good and the bad.

Advice to Senior ManagementI'm a member of the management, so I don't think I should be giving myself advice on a public website. :-)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
