Featured Review

Current Employee - Warehouse Associate

I have been working at Amazon part-time

Pros

Good colleagues that are friendly

Cons

You have to stand for 9 hours

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 :)
