I worked at Opera Solutions

Pros

Opportunity to work with lots of financial services clients
Good managers
good place to start for fresh college graduates
Meet clients after first week

Cons

Lots of politics at senior management level
unfairness in project assignments
Promotion depended on whether your principle had firm standing in the firm, I.e. being able toconsistently bring in projects
Brown nosers get ahead

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your staffing process is completely unfair and you better sort out all the internal politics. the good people are being treated unfairly by the senior management.

    Pros

    All the people I work with are extremely bright and I can learn a lot from them. Also, there are no egos. We're all trying to accomplish the same thing and more focused on the pioneering and outcome rather than individual praise. If you work hard, you get noticed because there is a high degree of visibility. Also there are good perks like friday lunches, happy hours, access to the MSG box, etc.

    Cons

    Their benefits package is not the best. Also, there is sometimes chaos working in a start-up type environment. Typical growing pains.

    Enriching as a place to grow socially; need more transparency, more training

    Pros

    * Entrepreneurial environment with some incentives in the right places
    * Peers with varied, but solid, backgrounds
    * Constantly growing in terms of size and of practice areas

    Cons

    * Little transparency from senior leadership. A confirmed rumor beats any memo
    * Little formal training (though this is growing)
    * Review process that leaves you with more new questions than answers about the direction of your career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need clear, predictable, timely, concise and honest communication from senior leadership. At the moment we get few of these attributes, if we get communication at all.
