Mixed Experience, Failing Company

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

ProsGreat career building experience in a very hot market (Predictive Analytics). The scientists/modelers are profoundly collaborative people who are have great faith in software (not necessarily software engineers). Flexible career options. Friday lunches, happy-hour, high-tea. Good community of people who are sincerely trying to succeed.

ConsLack of IT and computing infrastructure conforming to industry standards is holding both analytics and software divisions. Dev-Ops team, which was functional, just disappeared entirely. Company has been steadily losing employees (about 1-3 a week) and laid-off all hiring staff in US. Factions between and within various offices deadlock any meaningful software development, in turn causing significant cash-burn without any enabling revenue. Competing in over-saturated markets because of several employee's and manager's history with Fair-Isaac

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Outstanding people, questionable leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Opera Solutions full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Intelligent and hardworking employees with a wide variety of backgrounds ranging from consulting, software, to sciences resulting in a friendly and tight-knit culture. Ability to do… Cons: Complete lack of understanding of software and technology by Sr. management. No understanding of how to build software. Extreme micromanagement by Sr. Managers stemming from… Advice to Senior Management: The virtual religious devotion of trying to "productize" everything combined with leadership that has no experience developing real software products is killing what was once… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
