    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Opower (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    Applied through LinkedIn. Contacted by HR. Then, had technical screening by phone with hiring manager. Once done, they sent me a homework with SQL and Linux questions. Finally, invited for all day face to face.
    Interviewed by six people.
    Never heard back after though all interviews went over the allotted time and interviewers seem interested.

    Pros:
    ** They are very hospitable.
    ** Very nice office
    ** Pets are allowed
    ** Various perks

    Cons:
    **No diversity (you will see that during tour)
    **They don't bother to give you interview feedback ( after spending your time and energy)

    Note: Honestly, I was not that interested in the position after I learned more about it.
