    I worked at Opera Solutions full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - You can take on a lot of responsibility very early - Opportunities to develop both technical and client-facing skill sets - Relaxed culture. Business casual, work from home/remote on almost all projects - Good selection of drinks/snacks, coffee machines, pool/ping-pong in office - In-office gym (it's small but never crowded) and showers - Regular happy hours - Transparent and accessible leadership

    Cons

    - Missing documentation on many processes, both internal and external. Things done on the fly - not as big of a con if you pay good attention from the start - No 401k match - Haven't paid bonuses in several years

    Advice to Management

    CEO has vision and company has real growth potential. Keep hiring quality people, continue encouraging an office that is close-knit, active, and welcoming. Train more comprehensively on your proprietary products. For those that can come in, embrace the vision, and advance the business - recognize this and compensate well. The business will live or die by these people.

      Close the company and get over with it.

        I worked at Opera Solutions full-time for more than 4 years

        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,
