good experience with the company

Associate (Current Employee)

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

ProsYou will enjoy this company for finding great colleagues and nice working environment. flexi work policies are blessing. Company is stuck due to poor planning, you will be working way too much (non stop for months day and night) & there would be long spells of no work. you could get mix of work, surreal as it is not known what you might be asked to do. no new projects, one has to take whatever comes in

Conscompany has lot of talent, however management is insensitive has miserably disappointed employees. they are not able to justify for the poor state of the company. with recent change in management, employees are expecting a better health of the company

My Experience says its awesome to work for in bachelor life

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Noida

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

ProsGood work Ethics Excellent Knowledgeable People who are a treat to work with. Very very Helpful when it comes to tough tasks. Friendly environment that helps build ones character.
Work from home, Challenging work, huge scope for employing your creativity and ideas and finally, a compensation that brings a smile to your face,Company is nice and there is no issue with the workload.
We can get lots of training to improve ourselves

ConsPromotions, hikes and appraisals are mutually exclusive events and completely random,management is short sighted, lacking any vision, inconsistent approach in direction

Advice to Senior ManagementOne thing i will sure give a feedback. Do a yearly market analysis and improve your POLICIES and employee interaction. You are ok to pay huge salaries for the new hires who are very less experience but refuse to pay to the existing employees. This is the only reason people are leaving the company even though they love to work here. Great minds and people left the company, and few excellent people are in frustration and looking for good opportunities. Totally the expertise came down to un-imaginable compared to couple of years ago. No one bothers.

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

Purely depends which team you are joining

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Opera Solutions for more than a year

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

ConsPolitics, 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 Senior ManagementSenior 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
