Pros

Smart and friendly employees, good place to learn.

Cons

Management is a disaster, the top leaders do not care what the scientists are thinking, they use lies to keep employees, no communications from the leadership to bottom employees, rumors are everywhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think the COO should be the person to be fired first. It was her who leaked the rumor that the company was running out of cash by the end of March 2013. It created panic among employees and people started looking for an exit more actively. Ironically, this lady later was promoted to be the co-COO and started laying off people.

    Pros

    Great to get your feet wet; great camaraderie among junior consultants.

    Cons

    Low set of values among top leadership, expect to be treated accordingly. Limited true expertise among the topics on which Opera declares itself as thought leader (big-data / sourcing), which often results in limited value to the client.

    Despite the long hours and big work load, the company treats you very well.

    Pros

    Fairly flexible schedule
    4 weeks vacation
    Lunch provided on Friday
    Opportunity to learn new skills
    Friendly staff

    Cons

    It feels like the company has lost its direction and is losing a lot of employees. We just got a lot of money from investors but it seems to be going quick on helping us find our way again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with each other so we can all head in the same direction. Let the employees know what's going on within the company. Find out why we are losing so many employees lately. It's bad for morale.
