Game Over

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

I have been working at Opera Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

ProsBrilliant vision and potential for products. Too bad none exist beyond powerpoint.

ConsCEO and senior management are no longer building a company, instead they are running for the exits and begging for money from system integrators for the scientists and smattering of customers. Zero cash for anything to grow the company, and in the last town hall, the CEO admitted the place was in too much disarray to be sold at this point.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo whatever it takes to put the company on solid footing, but please don't sell out to an SI and give away our potential as a pure play. That is why many of us have endured the long road-in hopes of a happy ending or IPO. Invest in either building big data solutions or classic services/consulting. decide to do one or the other. Trying to do both is killing Opera.

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

Lots of work, long hours and little fun, though you learn a lot, quickly.
