    I worked at Opera Solutions full-time

    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.

    Pros

    Work life balance is good.
    Very good payers. I can say on par with top tech gaints.
    The project you got here matters a lot in terms of work life balance. I didn't got as hectic work as my peers got. They will recognise you by actions not merely by words.

    Cons

    The work is not very challenging compared to e-commerce companies. Company is not having very organised structure.. Things will change in no time. But they are improving a lot.. I observed clear difference in last 18 months.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency is more important.. The idea with which you established the company is great.. Very potential.. But focus more on that not for temporary gains.

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

    Pros

    Friday Lunches, good payment, regular outings and office/team events, monthly birthday celebrations, good learning curve, friendly employees. Many types of reimbursements available.

    Cons

    Their proprietary Signal Hub which has no future and it's experience doesn't count for other industries. Too many portals inside. Unhygienic office environment on Friday. Most of the employees are into vices (drinking, smoking, drugs), stressful job.

    Advice to Management

    Employees latest performance must be kept in mind over the overall track of performance. Try to retain your existing employees better, as you can't always rely on freshers for all projects in the future.

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

    Pros

    - Gotten a chance to work on some of the amazing projects in Airlines and Telecom Sector...
    - Was encouraged by one of the my business leader (my mentor) to work across verticals - in only two years, I got to work across two business verticals - something you rarely get a chance in any of the other firms...
    - It was really nice to speak and work directly with Client teams Opera is really cool with that actually ... [BTW, I have worked with one of the leading consulting firm in the past in New York/ Pune - there was a complete hierarchy that only Client Partners or Relationship Managers could speak to the client]
    - I have seen a huge transition in last 2 years within Opera - WITH company being completely non-transparent TO company being completely transparent now... I see emails from the CEO every Friday talking about in-depth machinery - I feel like the Management has become much more approachable in last one year...

    Cons

    - Mentor program could be made much more powerful.. Opera feels like a complete start-up with lot of changing things - and it is important that every employee is personally overseen and mentored by a senior team member. I think it is not difficult for every Director (AND ABOVE) to personally take care of 10 juniors...
    - HR could be made much more approachable to the ground teams

    Advice to Management

    Focus on People Issues
