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

    Pros

    - Very talented and selected set of people, probably the best in the industry.
    - Tremendous learning opportunities.
    - Growth not a function of number of years spent with the organization but directly related to the quality of work you deliver.
    - Managers and even the India head are very approachable and always ready to talk.
    - Very friendly work environment. People really willing to share their knowledge/expertise.
    - Flexible timings

    Cons

    - The company is growing at a tremendous rate. So, an increased focus on employee satisfaction is needed to retain the talented set of people and bringing them abreast with the company's vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the management is already working on the areas to be focused on to ensure growth
