    Pros

    Flexible working hours, Friday lunch and informal atmosphere

    Cons

    All negative - 0% transparency, Upper management is horrible and doing politics especially in s/w, no year end increment only on promotion, no technical people on upper management side. Earlier it was more then 50 folks in s/w now it is less then 30 and no recruitment. your future in hand of upper management (no 360 feedback).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please remove upper management and hire some talented technical managers.

    Pros

    NONE.. YOU READ ME RIGHT.. NONE

    Cons

    Calls itself a Big Data firm, What a Joke ! No one knows anything about Big Data here.
    Claims to have a Signal Hub that does automated problem solving. What a Joke ! Just a scam to fool in clients.
    Brought in a new CEO to give new hope to people. What a joke ! He is just being used as a rubber stamp. Company being run by same old evils.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Former Employee - Analytics Manager in Noida

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

    Pros

    Everything except senior management who repeatedly failed to provide leadership and guidance to an exceptionally talented bunch of employees

    Cons

    I was an India employee and I have experienced that the leader in India and few of his cronies have reduced the India operation into a nonsense. They simply don't know (and want to either) how the analytics industry works and hence couldn't leverage the India operation full of bright people. They fired all the lateral hires because they were perceived as a threat and the leader in particular is very scared about his own prospects as the laterals outwitted him on many occasions. Now the situation is so bad that Opera is begging for Wipro's business - whereas Wipro wanted to leverage Opera as its analytics powerhouse! I think some good leaders can be hired for India and the situation can be salvaged. Damage control cannot be done by commenting on glass door posts - that too by junior HR trainees proxying as "management"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the courage to hire laterally and challenge yourselves, shed you arrogance and submit to the fact that it needs a different type of skill sets to run an aspiring analytics shop. Not everything can be achieved by PowerPoint decks.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, smart colleagues, start-up friendly culture

    Cons

    flat learning curve in consulting stream, no one gets onshore opportunities in first year, low employee morale currently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Campus pass-outs join the firm hoping that it'll be a great learning opportunity for them. In absence of learning opportunities, attrition is bound to happen. Management should push policies that ensure steep learning curve for freshers.

    Former Employee - Solutions Analyst in Noida
    Former Employee - Solutions Analyst in Noida

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

    Pros

    - Informal work culture; very approachable and friendly seniors/colleagues
    - Work life balance
    - decent amount of top-down transparency
    - Leadership change in recent times which can bring the firm out of muddy waters

    Cons

    - Inability to convert big projects
     - Certain BUs find diminishing share in the overall business leading to low employee morale
     - Not so state-of-the-art training facilities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Focus on providing good quality and productive work and professional exposure to the employees especially the fresher ones.
    2. Streamline on business verticals and pitch for good projects in order to bring certainty and focus back in the firm.
    Having said this, with the new leadership team in place the firm looks set for a better future ahead.

    Pros

    Friendly environment, everyone is ready to help. Promotions totally based on merit.
    Performance based incentives at the end of the year

    Cons

    No major challenges as such, as it is a young firm process is evolving and with the pace of growth, things will fall into place.
