    I worked at Opera Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Free lunch on Friday, free food in the kitchen.
    There were many, many good reasons to join this company. But these days are long gone.

    Cons

    Political and confused senior management ruined a great company and started an unstoppable talent exodus. Future looks really uncertain, with an attrition rate never seen before. Offices are empty end depressing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign

    Pros

    This company is good for freshers only.

    Cons

    Employees are getting fired without reason and being kicked like a thief. No training , No knowledge extension. Technically it is not using good technology in IT. It is outdated technology. No appraisal cycle is fixed. No way to evaluate employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should check the way Manager works. Some manager sits in US are working here as a contractor they are also working in some other companies as a contractor so they schedule meeting as per their comforts. They expects hard works without authority. They don't think about the life of others those works in India office. .

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, smart colleagues, start-up friendly culture

    Cons

    flat learning curve in consulting stream, no one gets onshore opportunities in first year, low employee morale currently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Campus pass-outs join the firm hoping that it'll be a great learning opportunity for them. In absence of learning opportunities, attrition is bound to happen. Management should push policies that ensure steep learning curve for freshers.

    I worked at Opera Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Bright folks before layoffs and mass exodus
    Friday lunch / office snacks

    Cons

    Bleak outlook for most verticals
    No visibility into reviews, promotions, or bonus structure
    Claims to be a products company when there is very little sw development expertise
    Every year becomes the "worst year" for the firm
    Change of direction every quarter is not yielding required results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it's not a products company
    Former CEO involvement may hinder progress

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Noida (India)
    Former Employee - Project Manager in Noida (India)

    I worked at Opera Solutions full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation...especially for the analytics & consulting teams but not for others..

    Cons

    No standard procedures for employee appraisal/promotion/bonus disbursement, no growth, no new projects coming in....already a lot of attrition from a long period of time but no efforts by top management to check it, all in all not worth a try even

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please get your act together and make the employees believe in your vision by tangible actions instead of just words....

    I have been working at Opera Solutions

    Pros

    Friendly environment, everyone is ready to help. Promotions totally based on merit.
    Performance based incentives at the end of the year

    Cons

    No major challenges as such, as it is a young firm process is evolving and with the pace of growth, things will fall into place.

    Former Employee - Solutions Analyst in Noida (India)
    Former Employee - Solutions Analyst in Noida (India)

    I worked at Opera Solutions full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Informal work culture; very approachable and friendly seniors/colleagues
    - Work life balance
    - decent amount of top-down transparency
    - Leadership change in recent times which can bring the firm out of muddy waters

    Cons

    - Inability to convert big projects
     - Certain BUs find diminishing share in the overall business leading to low employee morale
     - Not so state-of-the-art training facilities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Focus on providing good quality and productive work and professional exposure to the employees especially the fresher ones.
    2. Streamline on business verticals and pitch for good projects in order to bring certainty and focus back in the firm.
    Having said this, with the new leadership team in place the firm looks set for a better future ahead.
