    I have been working at Opower full-time (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 :)

    Engagement Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Opower (London, England) in November 2014.

    Interview

    One initial recruiter call, second call with manager and third series of meetings over 3 hours. They never got in touch to tell me they weren't progressing further after I spent over 4 hours talking to them, I didn't follow-up as I wasn't keen to proceed, but it felt like a test - if you don't prompt them then you are not interested. You really need to push them to let you know what is happening.
