One of the best organizations to work for and definitely the best at an early stage of your career

Analytics Specialist (Former Employee)
Noida (India)

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

Great Culture, Below Market Compensation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Opera Solutions

ProsOn the consulting side, pretty much everyone attended and ivy league school (or MIT, Stanford etc.) so you're surrounded by very intelligent people. There is an excellent culture within the company: Friday happy hours, lots of firm-building activities that are actually enjoyable.

ConsCompensation for junior staff is below that of competitors leading to a high turnover- a shame given the excellent culture. Also, it is still to be determined how everything shakes out as the company transitions. Overall, it has been a postive experience. The only real gripe is the compensation and the realization that less qualified people doing the same job at another company are fairing better financially.

Advice to Senior ManagementRaise the pay of junior level employees

Still a start-up

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Opera Solutions

ProsFor all of one's desires for crazy hours and wild times of a start-up, Opera is able to provide in abundance. Still there's great knowledge here and the sophistication of the entire company is still increasing day-by-day.

ConsManagement is quite disorganized at times. Things appear to be progressing, yet there are still a large number of cooks in the kitchen. Project to project the environment can be wholly different; so, on which project you work is very important.

Advice to Senior ManagementSet out a clear plan for what we want to build, sell and do; good start recently. Then, leave it to the employees to create and execute your plan. Too much planning; or no planning and no direction, are alternately flogging us. Still thank you for keeping up the great environment -- keep us young, keep our egos in check.

ConsSkill set addition difficult
