"Good people...(data science) bubble-economy decisions."

I worked at Opera Solutions (More than a year)

Pros

Smart scientists, fun atmosphere, great managers, good place to learn a semi-rigorous approach to data science. Of course I complained about management while there, but since leaving I see that they were comparatively pretty good.

Cons

Fake products such as vektor (that were targeted to impress investors rather than actually do anything) were demoralizing. Lack of profits or great projects led me to seek work elsewhere. The research group was completely disconnected from other groups, which sucked because everyone wanted a little research and a little product development. The focus on PhDs rather than engineers slowed down product development.

    I have been working at Opera Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Works around your schedule, flexible and options to work from home when your kids are sick!

    Cons

    Do not come clean to employees, underpaid and all suddenly not bonuses!

    Advice to Management

    please be responsible and tell the true what is going on with the company. Money comes but disappear right away. You keep hiring this high level salaries and your people struggling, YOU NEED TO KEEP US HAPPY TO WORK FOR YOU.
