Swan song?

Engagement Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Opera Solutions full-time

ProsAlthough some of Opera’s best people have recently left or been pushed out, the company still has some very bright minds knowledgeable not only in Analytics but also in several client industries.

ConsThe CEO and main shareholder is after a quick cash-out and is pushing changes that are harmful to the mid- and long-term future of the company.

Morale is extremely low and most decent people currently interview with other companies, several key scientists and the heads of the London and Paris offices have left already and the quality of client work starts decreasing.
HR policies and direction are inexistent and bonuses have been pathetic (or nil) for the last couple of years…

Opera was built with a great business model, combining the insights of advanced analytics with the deep understanding that ex-management consultants can bring to specific industries. For years, it had a clear advantage over other big data market players.
Now, it endeavors to copy the business model of software houses but without having neither the DNA nor the relevant resources for it… add to that the departure of so many good people and the constant changes in the leadership group… disaster is looming.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your act together and stop trying to copy other companies

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
