A Fast Improving Company with Great Vision and Products

Staff Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Redwood City, CA

I have been working at Silver Spring Networks Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

ProsProud to be a part of company that truly cares about changing the energy use. Smart grid is not about getting rid of the meter man, but provides the ability to conserve energy by dynamic pricing, dynamic response and stabilize the grid via distribution automation. I also like where the company is going with smart city initiative and providing the network for street lights, traffic lights, etc. This will be a game changer. I agree that management had problems last couple years, but is recognizing the issues and working actively to address them by putting the right people in charge and implementing good processes.

ConsLots of exciting products with too little people. It could be a bit chaotic at times. Contract awards do take a long time due to the nature of the business.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to improve and put right people in charge and listen to the employees. Prioritize on projects that give the biggest bang for the buck. Vision is great, but execution is everything.

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