Featured Review

Former Employee - Project Manager

I worked at AES Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

AES will support anybody who shows a drive to learn, and willingly moves employees around the business, in line with personal career aspirations. A very stimulating company to work for, especially... given the active role AES is taking in the changing nature of energy.

Cons

The usual: long hours, stretched resources, sometimes stressful.

Advice to Management

Keep on supporting innovative business models in order to remain competitive.

Current Employee - Sales Director

I have been working at Opower full-time for less than a year

Pros

Smart people... I've been working in Intel and Oracle before and the professional level in Opower is even higher. In addition you really feel valued and the management is really helpful. By the way,... it's the first time that I enjoy working for a company and I don't mind answering emails on the weekend... Dan and Alex got it! :) When you feel that you are working for a nice company with nice people around and you are decreasing the climate change... What else can you ask for??? :) I would like to add that even the brand is amazing. We have some goodies that are really nice and Opower is now a real brand with some marketing that is awesome!

Cons

There are two tiny issues I would complain for... First, there are a lot of internal reviews in a bad moment of the year. Second, the goodies that are sent to the offices out of the States are really... poor... We don't get the good ones! ;)

Advice to Management

Send more goodies to Europe! And now seriously, please book the review times more wisely :)
