    Pros

    Good for freshers who don't know anything. They can give trainings even for 2 months becoz they hardly have any meaningful work in India office.

    Cons

    Worst company for mid-career employees. If you are IITian, fine. Else, stay away. You will loose your talent. IITians will get any other job even if they do just support work. Work in India office is all back office.

    Pros

    1. No strict 9 AM reporting time. Nobody comes before 11 AM.
    2. Free Friday lunches..
    3. Monthly / Quarterly events.
    4. Approachable senior management

    Cons

    1. Politics. At almost all BU's and all levels. Especially in India.
    2. No work life balance. All calls / work is scheduled during US business hours.
    3. No growth career / opportunities. If you stick with Opera for long, you will see you're doing the same what you used to do when you joined.

    Advice to Management

    Minimize if you cant kill politics...

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

    Pros

    # Work from home.
    # High-end laptops.
    # Free blackberry phones with unlimited STD, ISD and Data.
    # Work with people from top IIT and IIM.
    # Work with top-notch brands (clients).

    # Free cab drop facility after 8PM.
    # Free dinner reimbursement after 8PM.
    # Monthly free cocktail party.
    # Chance of on-site (read US ;-) ) visit (if you're a good politician and manipulator you should nail a couple of onsite visit per year)
    # Chance of US transfer. (if you're a good politician and manipulator you should nail it comfortably)

    Cons

    # They keep on ranting big data, big data, big data...
    # Fellows from IITs and IIM rule the company - if you are not from IIT/IIM you will be treated like a step child. (Not applicable for people good at politics and manipulations ;-) )
    # Too much politics. Some particular people are decision makers and unless you lick their feet you will not progress much in this company.
    # Awesome place for smart and showy people. Hard workers will get crushed by these set of smart and showy people.
    # Outdated and in house technologies used.
    # If you are not from IIT/IIM you will drastically downgrade your market value here.
    # Full of greedy leaders.

    # Show the door to greedy leaders.
    # You are part of a company not any political party to do and encourage politics.
    # Don't rant "Equal opportunity employer" PROVE instead.

    Pros

    Interesting problems for demanding customers, particularly in finance. Opportunity to work with neat tools (Hadoop, etc.) on large problem sets. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Bread and butter is in less attractive domains, such as purchasing optimization. Also,this is a consulting not a product company, so be prepared to move to where the billing happens. As an engineer, prepare to be flexible and work on a variety of different projects.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a better technical track for engineers. Too often working Opera can feel like being a billable resource at a staffing company rather than part of a team.

    I have been working at Opera Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free Friday Lunches
    Great office Location ( New jersey Office)
    Happy Hours

    Cons

    There are more managers than people who actually do the work (coding and analysis).
                 At a single time , 2-3 managers will give you ideas to implement and everyone expects the results. If you complain, they will ask you to manage time properly.

    Signal Hub is Very bad. They sell this product to many clients ( who buy it because its cheaper in market) but there are issues every day.

    Work - Life balance is the worst.

    They do not have enough money to give Bonus to everyone.

    Do not get stuck in this company for more than a year or else you will be stuck for ever.

    Advice to Management

    E3 , F3 does not change the working conditions. Let your employees have some life as well.
