    I have been working at Optoro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work with smart, interesting, and fun people every day. I have the opportunity to tackle both business and environmental problems. Tons of other perks like beautiful office, cold brew, rooftop, etc... The flexible WFH/PTO policy is also quite generous. I feel so lucky to be working here while we are in this growth period!

    Cons

    I think the (small) problems are typical of any fast growing start-up, like figuring out ways to share information, collaborate across teams, and so on. Definitely making steps in the right direction though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work - we appreciate it :)

    I have been working at Optoro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun environment, nice office, convenient location. You're pushed to keep learning and owning responsibilities as new requirements. There are a lot of people here that really know what they're doing and are more than happy to help you do something or learn something.

    The goals and mission of the company are important for the long term health of the economy and environment - and we're proud of the changes that we make.

    Cons

    Ownership, alignment, and communication across teams and departments. Misunderstandings over priorities and goals cause friction across departments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working towards the long term vision, ensure day-to-day priority setting stays in line with the long term future of the company. Watch for burn out and single points of failure.
