I have been working at Opower as an intern

Pros

Super casual and approachable workplace culture. Opower invests heavily in their employees from constant Opower U cross trainings to a fully stocked kitchen, espresso machine, catered lunches, and massages.

Cons

They are the smartest people in the room and they are the first to tell you.

    I worked at Opower full-time

    Pros

    You can feel good that the work you do helps people save energy, and through that, helps protect the natural environment.

    Cons

    A lot of mediocre managers, no real career path/growth/opportunities, no real HR department, no 401(k) match, unimpressive salaries and stock options, very little diversity, headquarters is in suburban Virginia.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more grown-ups who know how to inspire, motivate, and manage staff. Be less passive-aggressive when working assumptions are challenged. Add women/people of color/gays to your all-male management team.

    I have been working at Opower full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome & unique culture, wicked smart, collaborative & passionate employees, great perks/pay/benefits, transparent & approachable senior leaders

    Cons

    Hyper growth means increased volume. You must work hard to work at Opower

    Advice to Management

    Continue to consider every employee's perspective, regardless of tenure, level, etc & always communicate down.
