      Pros

      Met some of the best people at Opera across all offices. Tight alumni network. Good exit opportunities. Had great perks (Friday lunches, fully stocked kitchen, gym in the office etc) that made you want to go to work.

      Cons

      Your day-to-day workload and experiences depended on your practice group. Some were great, others not so much.

      Mixed Bag - Good People Poor Management

      Dec 10, 2019 - Consultant in Jersey City, NJ
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very high caliber professional services team Interesting and challenging projects

      Cons

      Poor senior management team Has wasted hundreds of millions of dollars in repositioning company into a solutions SaaS company rather than its legacy consulting business - largely unsuccessfully. Now has too much focus upon scalability and replicability In projects rather than adopting a bespoke business problem and solutioning approach - all problems are addressed as analytical challenges addressed through the Signal Hub platform, when this should actually share and inform strategy rather than being the solution itself.

      Stay Away !!

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Many when I started, none when I left

      Cons

      Circa 2014, the ownership and top management in their infinite wisdom tried to force fit a Technology Product model into what was a fledgling Analytics Services company with remnants of a (rather successful) management consulting business. That's when the trouble started. There were arbitrary changes and inane business decisions that failed to recognize the core strengths and went all out trying to sell an unmarketable and non-viable product which no one wanted. There was no regard for employees and hiring and firing decisions started to be made based on personal preferences of those on the top. Then the inevitable happened when the company failed to live up to investors' expectations and was taken over by the creditors. The new brass is trying hard to paint a rosy picture despite a huge (and expected) wave of lay offs, but to the wise it is crystal clear that the company has no future. Period.

      Pros

      Great coworkers, fun and challenging work

      Cons

      Don't know where to begin. Don't bully employees, don't spy on employees, match 401k, keep your word, stop firing or running off everyone. In short, get good at running a company.
