    Pros

    Strong AI/ML and analytics strengths married to a good track record of traditional consulting. Impressive client list with opportunities to make your mark.

    Cons

    Opera is trying to transition from a consulting organization to a platform provider (SignalHub). The strategy is clear; the tactics not so much. Work is interesting but heavily siloed. Satisfaction is hit or miss based on the client team and your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Complete the transition and realign the staff,

    I worked at Opera Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Friday lunches, offices, most of the people

    Cons

    Lack of business acumen in their domain led to constant grasping at straws.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on selling solutions instead of selling everyone on the company.

    Pros

    The people around me were great and I learned much from them.
    Most candidates don't appreciate how nice the location is, which is great.

    Cons

    Leadership changes direction often and you hope it's a one off mistake and then it happens again in few months. Leadership has lost the trust.
    Bonuses first were reduced and more recently disappeared altogether. Don't do this for money.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in one direction for couple of years. This implies that you need to truly believe in your direction from the beginning. If the direction absolutely has to change, then make sure that the next direction is good.

    Pros

    Culture of the company is good. Lots of activities!!!

    Cons

    Software Solution & Analytic teams are average. All the solutions need so many people to support and deliver. Every solution's team is working in their own world without any guidance. Related leadership doesn't even bother, to protect their interests.

    Software leadership is below average. No concept about SDLC. Lack of coding skills & Communication in the software team is worst.

    Senior person (not CEO) who supposedly running the show has no clue about the issues and not willing to fix any, if they are not aligned with his agenda.

    Advice to Management

    Please look into solutions problems, especially two main big clients.

    Pros

    Great place to work with a great atmosphere and amazing people. Company promotes self growth both professionally and personally.

    Cons

    Sad we dont't have an office in the Caribbean.

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

    Pros

    Good base salary. Great view of NYC from Opera office in Jersey City.

    Cons

    Opera had a very high employee turnover rate.

    It had originated as a consulting company that now wanted to be software company. I don’t believe they understood the buying process of healthcare providers. Opera healthcare team members and managers were quite arrogant (smartest guys in the room mentality) in presentations with providers and had the expectation a contract should be signed immediately after doing a demo (more like a feature dump) with a healthcare system. This type of selling is/was a huge turnoff with healthcare system influencers and decision makers. When prospects asked for client references, former clients were provided as references (yes, FORMER clients!). Also, travel approval had to go through multiple layers of management resulting in last minute booking of travel due to the amount of time it would take for approval. This not only made booking travel difficult, but more expensive.

    Advice to Management

    You may want your managers and team members to ease off on the "we are the smartest guys in the room" attitude. Learn how healthcare providers buy software (don't shove product and arrogance down their throats).

    Pros

    You will learn some experience about data analysis in different industries.
    Projects base.

    Cons

    a large proportion of data analysts team is in China and India, which means team members are possible not in the same office. update info by the phone call.
