I worked at Opera Solutions full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Learned from the many mistakes managers and execs made. Made some good connections that helped me escape.

Cons

Management would lie to keep scientists around.
Managers known to encourage same day departure when you give your two weeks to save the company a buck.
Owing to clueless managers, the loudest apes would get their way.

Advice to Management

Lost cause. They have no passion.

    I worked at Opera Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    the space was hot (until recently); superficially the story was interesting for Opera; there was great promise for building a disciplined consulting firm with tagalong recurring revenues

    Cons

    zero consistency in execution. The CEO had a new strategy every day. Sycophants surround him and no one is willing to tell the emperor he isn't wearing any clothes

    Advice to Management

    probably too late to save the place without entirely new leadership; significant job cuts; and a renewed build it up again focus on the consulting w selected recurring revs model.

    I worked at Opera Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.
