Opower is trying very hard to be a great place for women. But, they falter due to a strong "Dude-Bro" culture.

The people are great and the mission was worth it, but the employees did not feel valued by the company. Communication was poor and oftentimes responses to complaints were answered unsatisfactorily with "just suck it up" or "there are worse things."

Make sure your manager is doing as much as he (and it's almost certainly a "he") can for you. Push him, if you need to.

Opower has been great to me. We recently sold to Oracle, not sure what will change or if I will even have a job anymore.

No women at the top. Some diversity efforts in play, but no awesome results yet.

It was a great place to work, although the Executive team can and should do more to make sure women are promoted into leadership positions. That said, who knows how the company will be in 6 months after the acquisition goes through.

    We recently succeeded in increasing parental leave to 16 weeks paid for primary caregivers and 6 weeks for secondary caregivers. However, with the acquisition, it's unclear if Oracle will honor this policy.

    Very uncertain time given the acquisition

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Opower was recently acquired by Oracle, so it's unclear how, if at all, the corporate culture will shift. According to Oracle's website, only 29% of their employees are 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).

It is a great place to work if you have kids. As a women (with or without kids), there are defintely some improvements that could be made. For example, leadership is mostly (white) males.

Come work here, but be ready to fight for yourself, especially in a technical role.

    Maybe. I like my job, I like the work that I do, and I like my coworkers. But I'd be lying if I said there weren't things I see here that bother me a lot. A team that hasn't hired a woman in years, women who are promoted later than their male colleagues, a woman who makes less than a man at a lower level in the same job, or reviews that use words like "abrasive" or "overly confident" to describe women.
