This is a great place to work for all employees. Benefits and work life balance can't be beat.
I have been at Opower for 3 years. Some teams are very woman friendly and some have a lot of bias. Upper management is definitely "bro" culture, but they appear to be getting better. My team was wonderful and my manager took criticism to heart when I sent him articles on unconscious bias. Our team is now gender balanced and his policy of resume name/pronoun scrubbing has led to a lot more diverse interviews and hires (in terms of race and gender). Other parts of the company are VERY bro-y. Our engineers are mostly male, our client support, and especially our Sales is overtly and covertly hostile to women.
Opower is a high intensity company with a vibrant, young vibe. Due to the long hours and stress levels, though, it does seem that there is a higher than normal level of burnout (vs what I've seen at the other software companies I've worked for). I think the company IS STARTING TO go out of its way to make up for past issues with diversity but they have a lot of ground to make up so it will take some time. Pay is less than what I would expect given work load but I'm not sure if that discrepancy leans more toward one gender or not (I have no insight into pay).
