"Used to be great"

23 Oct 2016 - Anonymous Employee


Worked with some amazingly smart people who truly believed in company mission.


The CEO lacked vision, low pay and sale to Oracle. Slightly political environment, need to know the right people.

  1. Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Opower (Arlington, VA) in May 2018


    Applied online, got a call from a recruiter within couple of days. Recruiter explained in detail what the role is about, we talked about my experience a bit and moved forward.

    Within a week got a call from a hiring manager/engineering manager for a screen sharing coding interview. Some Javascript coding tricks (hoisting, scopes) and re-implemented one of the lodash functions. The interviewer was very knowledgable and greatly navigated thru the interview. Hands down probably the best interviewer I've ever had.

    A week later another screen sharing coding interview with another senior member. Similar concept: couple of general questions and reimplement one of the lodash functionalities. Again, very positive experience.

    A week or two later, I had an onsite with three different interviewers 1:1. Two coding interviews, one general design and testing related. Again, awesome and smart people, one of the best interview experiences I've ever had. Questions aren't extremely hard ones, but a bit challenging (Javascript Promises, some algorithms, designing an app).

    I got an offer. Had I not been convinced by my current employer about new opportunities within my current company, I would have gladly joined the team.
