Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Opera Solutions full-time (More than a year)

Pros

If you're liked by certain partners, you'll do very very well here. If you want to win, you have to play the right way.

Cons

Lots of office politics. Owner is rude to partners, hence partners rude to managers and managers rude to associates. Culture really trickles down from the top and when I was there 2008 - 2010 (granted it was the financial downturn), the environment at work and projects were really hostile. Your happiness highly depending on which partner(s) you worked with.

Advice to Management

Less politics. More transparency. Hire more respectful people who don't verbally abuse others and work employees to their death.
