Excellent Company To Work For

Contractor (Current Employee)
Port Hueneme CBC Base, CA

I have been working at Opal Soft as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsOpalSoft really takes care of its employees from start to finish. It's dedication to employee development and career opportunities really separates OpalSoft from the rest of the companies I have worked for. OpalSoft removes the barriers between management and employees and really emphasizes a family environment where anyone is approachable from the very top to the bottom. While business matters are important to them, they never forget about the individual and their families. Been very happy working for them.

ConsLike all companies, none of them are perfect. Bi-monthly pay checks are annoying but you get use to it, especially since more and more companies are following this route. Other than that, no real complaints.

Advice to Senior ManagementSee if bi-weekly pay checks can ever be an option.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great place to work. A company with good values and professional environment

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)

Superb Company of the highest caliber! Best company I've ever worked for, employee-oriented.

Asset and Inventory Control Specialist (Current Employee)
Port Hueneme CBC Base, CA

I have been working at Opal Soft as a contractor for more than 5 years

ProsContract won via recompete, at first a little uneasy about a small business taking on a large contract. I was wrong from day 1. Extremely professional management and staff. Certainly contract fulfillment was a high priority but they also provided numerous training opportunities to equip all with the tools needed resulting in the highest product delivery possible. Simply extraordinary. Management team adept at recognizing talent and rewards are leagues above most big business competitors.

ConsThe rewards are tremendous but that also means the expectations are high. A team oriented company, OpalSoft leads the field in gaining employee buy-in regardless of staffing flucuations. Under achievers are given every opportunity to improve before they will dimiss a below average performer. This tends to hurt team morale on one hand but it is commenable that they would go to such extents to help an individual improve.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn contract negotiations, OpalSoft has set a very high standard which, if they win a contract, it benefits the employees tremendously. However, it's getting to the win that may need review especially under the current austere fiscal challenges in today's economy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Body shop experience is classic.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Opal Soft as a contractor for less than a year

ProsQuick hiring process was the only professional experience witnessed.

ConsBecause company is based on the west coast. Employees not local to H.Q. are pretty much left on their own.

Company payroll needs to better understand unemployment rules and regulations.

Poor benefits.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to visit off-site contract locations.

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

They treat the employees well and provide them with as much information as possible.

Senior Information Assurance Engineer (Current Employee)
Port Hueneme CBC Base, CA

I have been working at Opal Soft full-time for more than a year

ProsTreated like a valued member of the team, good salary and training policy. Kept the team well-appraised of the contract situation as it developed.

ConsDistributed management isn't always onsite to deal with issues. 10 days vacation and 5 days of sick leave per year is rough. Semi-monthly paychecks are inconvenient.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlways assign a team lead to each team deployed at a customer site to reduce issues from becoming fires.
