Fine to get experience, but you'll wish you could work somewhere else

Business Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsOpera has a few good things going for it. Skybox seat at Madison Square Garden, somewhat flexible hours in the event that you need to get something done and come back to your work, and a very intelligent group of consultants- especially at the analyst level. Everyone was fun to talk with and well-traveled, all consultants were from the best schools and had great analytical abilities. Very few people were actually bad at their jobs at the analyst level.

ConsThis organization doesn't typically know how much money they will make. Since 2008, many projects became rev-share, the everyday lunches started getting cut (I know- a perk). We were paid below-market salaries with the expectation of higher bonuses, but then no bonuses ever came around for the class that entered in 2008. Salaries were cut 10%, healthcare by 50%. No matching 401k, hard hours until the work started stopping- and then no hours....

Extremely incompetent principals. Stunningly bad.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet some real people into principal roles, get better at giving REAL feedback, and be honest in town-hall meetings.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
