    Company going through the transition phase

    Analyst (Current Employee) Noida

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementCampus 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.

    " Lack of good quality projects in certain business verticals.."

    Solutions Analyst (Former Employee) Noida

    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 Senior Management1. 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Anybody can be fired at any time

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Noida

    ProsThis company is good for freshers only.

    ConsEmployees are getting fired without reason and being kicked like a thief. No training , No knowledge extension. Technically it is not using good technology in IT. It is outdated technology. No appraisal cycle is fixed. No way to evaluate employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should check the way Manager works. Some manager sits in US are working here as a contractor they are also working in some other companies as a contractor so they schedule meeting as per their comforts. They expects hard works without authority. They don't think about the life of others those works in India office. .

    It is a fine organisation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- Good/smart people around
    - Nice/quality analytics work
    - quality junior staff
    - very good and transparent CEO

    Cons- Less focus on primary delivery
    - politicising any situation for own benefit
    - no personal support system

    Advice to Senior Management- there is a difference of meaning in bonus as incentive and promotions as incentive. One should not swap for each other.
    - Early promotions of junior at batch level may end up creating issue to senior staff

    Not fit to work

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Noida

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Quality of Work.. Better Pay than Peers.. Resources not managed optimally

    Senior Analytics Specialist (Current Employee) Noida

    ProsSome Very Talented People (some remain, some have left). Great technical learning environment. No hesitation in applying and experimenting with innovative techniques. Very few but very bright scientific minds at most senior level in India team. Optimistic with the vision and enthusiasm of new CEO

    ConsPoor division of work among teams. Good resources are over utilized leading them to burn out with too much work. Bad resources ( there are people especially in India team who forever work from home, run their startups or family businesses and avoid Opera's work) still being given incentives.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare for your good resources and dont over burden them just because they dont complain. Please make sure that everybody in the team works equally.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
