    I worked at Opera Solutions full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation...especially for the analytics & consulting teams but not for others..

    Cons

    No standard procedures for employee appraisal/promotion/bonus disbursement, no growth, no new projects coming in....already a lot of attrition from a long period of time but no efforts by top management to check it, all in all not worth a try even

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please get your act together and make the employees believe in your vision by tangible actions instead of just words....

    I worked at Opera Solutions (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible Timing, Come to office anytime - Leave office anytime, Work from home. They just want work, anyhow.

    Cons

    Politics, Poor senior management, no appreciation, cost cutting, do have many policies but no one follow those policies, unfair appraisal system. Employees who have joined straight from campus were sometime given work of data crunching which they do it for 6 months to 1 year keeping a hope and expectation that they will get a good quality work. No transparency is there as many employees doesn't even ave idea whats going in the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management should be approachable and flexible enough to do the changes, so that the employees in junior can come and share their common problems which they facing and accordingly changes should be implement.

    Pros

    Very friendly and helpful peers who stand by you, and work alongside you at weirdest hours
    Flexible hours of work, though that can turn around and bite you by taking your work-life balance haywire
    Few people with good, in-depth knowledge of machine learning

    Cons

    Very poor, immature management who dont know what timelines to commit to clients. End up setting unrealistic working hours for employees, without any overtime payment
    Confusion in project leadership, random meetings, no organized directional approach to problem solving
    Absolutely no consideration for personal time. Sends work anytime, anywhere, and expects everything to get done "right now"
    Senior management has almost 0 skills in people management. Hatred towards managers is common. Barely ever you get to hear an appreciative comment, only interested in finding mistakes and belittling people
    Non-existent training program, yet sky-high expectations of highest quality work output at impossible deadlines

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the galssdoor page and pay attention to the cons. It is more than obvious that the senior management needs a serious overhaul. Consider taking them through intensive training in leadership and emotinal intelligence. Have the courage to fire managers because of whose behavior scores of people leave the company - in the end it will serve you good.

    Mediocre work for software folks.

    Pros

    Good flexible pay if you are from a tier one college. Cant think of anything else. They do give a blackberry to every employee for calls, etc!

    Cons

    Company management seems unclear w.r.t. the direction in which the company is going. HR is a complete joke. Lot of restrictions on network and IT. Facilities such as snacks, lunch even at one's own cost are practically non existent. No stock options unless you are at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better people.
