High Level of Uncertainty on Continuance - Needs to be addressed.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Opera Solutions full-time

ProsGood organisation for employees in front end teams like Services/Analytics/Software, but does not care for its back-office operation employees like G&A functions.

ConsManagement's vision is very short term, it keeps on changing rapidly killing initiatives and contributions of long staying individuals as they loose with every change.
Organisation's future and vision is blurred.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should connect with Employees much more frequently and share clear insights on their views and guidance (and not only flashy words without any depth).
Management should actively instill confidence in employees and assure future prosperity of the company.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pathetic company

Data Analyst (Current Employee)
Noida

I have been working at Opera Solutions full-time for less than a year

ProsWork from home. No strict timing.

ConsWork from home is ta rick to make employees work 24X7
They pay 10K more than a normal company but they make you work equivalent to 2 person.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to wake up and understand their responsibilities. Need to be taught how to interact with employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It began well and turned into several years of failed business plans and un-kept promises.

Support Services (Former Employee)
Jersey City, NJ (US)

I worked at Opera Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe company is full of nice, smart people. They're fun to be around, although smiling faces had become few and far between in the past couple of years.

ConsCompany description that changes as often as most people change their underwear. Products and services that either don't deliver as promised, or do at a price that's totally unprofitable to the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementResign. They offer nothing to the people they hope will make the company work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Killed by greed - watch for phony employee reviews

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Opera Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

ProsNone - management team is lost and trying to survive with smoke and mirrors. When the end justifies the means to make a few rich at the expense of employees it is hard to find a 'pro'

ConsAll fluff and no substance - has NOTHING to sell but marketing materials
No knowledge of digital - either technology or data
Spending money like drunken sailors, with nothing to show for in terms of software or IP
hired 100's of employees overnight with just one phone screen, gave them very high titles and doubled their salaries just to turn around and fire them (and yes it is true)
Constantly running out of cash and telling lies to employees regarding salaries and bonus payments that never come
No longer any competent business minds at opera
EXTREMELY dishonest with employees and clients alike - absolutely no sense of integrity
Expensive services for clients and engagements that get renewed less that 5% of the time
Look at the writing style of the positive (3+ stars)reviews ...it's easy to see that they are fake. Management is working hard to fight the flow of negative reviews

Advice to Senior ManagementKarma is just around the corner

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Well that was disappointing

Senior Analytics Specialist (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA (US)

I worked at Opera Solutions full-time for more than a year

ProsLearned from the many mistakes managers and execs made. Made some good connections that helped me escape.

ConsManagement would lie to keep scientists around.
Managers known to encourage same day departure when you give your two weeks to save the company a buck.
Owing to clueless managers, the loudest apes would get their way.

Advice to Senior ManagementLost cause. They have no passion.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

watching a slow motion train wreck w an out-of-control CEO

Principal (Former Employee)
Jersey City, NJ (US)

I worked at Opera Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

Prosthe space was hot (until recently); superficially the story was interesting for Opera; there was great promise for building a disciplined consulting firm with tagalong recurring revenues

Conszero consistency in execution. The CEO had a new strategy every day. Sycophants surround him and no one is willing to tell the emperor he isn't wearing any clothes

Advice to Senior Managementprobably too late to save the place without entirely new leadership; significant job cuts; and a renewed build it up again focus on the consulting w selected recurring revs model.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
