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

    Pros

    a good global company, a good beginning for young graduates, full of talent people.
    I have learned a lot since on board.

    Cons

    Recently, more and more experienced veterans left for better opportunities, better salaries, better bonus. And it seems no plan to save them.

    Advice to Management

    The salary are becoming lower than industry average level recent years, so it's a little harder to attract good candidates. The bonus plan are always changing and hard to understand.

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

    Pros

    For IITians (analytics group, large in number):
    Free snacks & cold-drinks
    Flexible office hours
    Work from home
    Laid back environment
    No work pressure

    Cons

    For Software group (A very small group, less than 50):
    Little or no snacks and no cold drinks at all
    Office hours being tracked
    No work from home
    Either lots of work pressure or no work at all

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the software group if it's not needed in the company or treat them equal to analytics group. At the end, they all are employees.

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

    Pros

    Although you might have to burn midnight oil sometimes, the job is mostly relaxed.

    Cons

    The set of technologies used is narrow, and mostly disconnected from the rest of the software industry. The work that you would get though, cannot be called non-trivial. Lets just say, if you are decently knowledgeable and ambitious, then you wouldn't need to apply yourself to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    I feel the whole software group in the company has been treated like a step-child.

    Pros

    Flexibility and chaotic management if are one of those you can thrive on it

    Cons

    No direction, management team is in trying its best to pump this company up to dump in and take the money and run. But so bad it is that they are paying interns to write good reviews on Internet including glassdoor. Feel sorry for the young talent who are learning wrong ethics. Not a single product is good to stand on its own. All of them are like Hampster running in data enter to keep lights on, saying patchwork everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    In 15 odd years they had one good CEO who lasted for 1 year. You cannot fool all the people all the time.

    Pros

    it is an active, vivid, happy company to work with, I enjoy the analytics projects and the business path.

    Cons

    it is a little bit push with tight schedule always, I burnt the middle night oil for years as all my colleages around me are doing the same thing.

    Advice to Management

    be more people oriented, instead of project oriented. Also, more competitive in terms of salary.

    Pros

    Clear vision and mission - To help companies extract & use intelligence, at scale, hidden in all their enterprise wide data assets ; using both technology & human intelligence . Proposition around analytics has evolved over the years and is now very clearly defined & differentiated from some of the other firms operating in this space.
    Innovative business model - Offerings built to add value to firms on both ends of the big data maturity pyramid ; point solutions & analytics as a service for some of the less mature firms and enterprise wide software for some of the more mature firms
    Culture - Very entrepreneurial ; Freedom to innovate ; Freedom to shape your own career : Multitude of roles to chose from - Could work as a business consultant, as a product manager or as a technology expert or ALL ! taking on extremely challenging & ambiguous business problems and building very creative & sustainable solutions, using technology & human insight, to solve them is ingrained in the DNA of the firm

    Cons

    lack of a very well defined career path - This is good and bad both - Good as you have the flexibility to discover what you like and accordingly shape up your career and bad because you may get lost ! (especially when you have very clear career goals)

    Advice to Management

    Now that the transformation to a big data analytics company is complete ; Need to be more aggressive in spreading awareness around the core mission of the company and how it differentiates itself from other companies in this space
