    Pros

    You 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

    Cons

    company 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

    Pros

    Very good pay
    Not a strict 9 to 5 office structure; work from home encouraged
    Attention given to the quality of work rather than the quantity of time spent in office

    Cons

    Lesser number of office parties since i have joined

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attention to employee retention and satisfaction. Increase interaction with the new joinees, it acts as a morale boost plus you get to know what's going on at the ground level.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Development Manager in Noida (India)
    Former Employee - Senior Software Development Manager in Noida (India)

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

    Pros

    I was hired to build India software operations. The heady and chaotic years from 2009 to 2012 were one of the best, as we made rapid strides in clients, talent and solutioneering ability. Certain amount of lateral and fiscal freedom, coupled with a management promoting open dialog.

    Cons

    Silos started emerging in late 2012, total lack of transparency and trust breakdowns - coupled with poor market traction led to a series of top flight departures. Software and engineering skills take a backseat to management whims and wannabe pseudo-consultants. There is time and importantly, talent , to turn the company around and it carries loads of goodwill with former employees(me included)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get you act right, be honest, remove biases and understand your true calling.
