    Pros

    Flexible work hours, smart colleagues, start-up friendly culture

    Cons

    flat learning curve in consulting stream, no one gets onshore opportunities in first year, low employee morale currently

    Advice to Management

    Campus pass-outs join the firm hoping that it'll be a great learning opportunity for them. In absence of learning opportunities, attrition is bound to happen. Management should push policies that ensure steep learning curve for freshers.

    Pros

    Friendly environment, everyone is ready to help. Promotions totally based on merit.
    Performance based incentives at the end of the year

    Cons

    No major challenges as such, as it is a young firm process is evolving and with the pace of growth, things will fall into place.

    Pros

    Some interesting projects, nice views from the office, currently there is probably a good opportunity for advancement given the mass exodus (very, very, very high attrition recently)

    Cons

    There aren't very many good people left, the vast majority of the employee base (~90%) has been at Opera for < 2 years, no culture, shady moves by mgmt, inability to staff projects sufficiently given the high attrition = very high risk of not being able to deliver current engagements and recently sold engagements (clients beware), very bad benefits

    Advice to Management

    Find a new job - everyone else is looking, so should you (you probably already are)

    Pros

    Nice office view of Hudson river.
    No one cares what you are doing (Pro for slackers). Otherwise see no pros and hope.
    Management talks all positive that's it.

    Cons

    Management confused as ever product company or consulting company. Make you work hard and when time comes of payout rules are changed so as delay the incentive and then pay few hundreds.
    Management is clueless, frequent Town Hall's and talks. Busy flying around the world and cares least about employees.
    Big Data is all BS. None of their products are delivered on time and as promised (Quality is out of question)
    Please check with the customers, they are all very dis-satisfied.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, It is damaged beyond repair. Every year new philosophy with new management and rules.

    Pros

    - Informal work culture; very approachable and friendly seniors/colleagues
    - Work life balance
    - decent amount of top-down transparency
    - Leadership change in recent times which can bring the firm out of muddy waters

    Cons

    - Inability to convert big projects
     - Certain BUs find diminishing share in the overall business leading to low employee morale
     - Not so state-of-the-art training facilities

    Advice to Management

    1. Focus on providing good quality and productive work and professional exposure to the employees especially the fresher ones.
    2. Streamline on business verticals and pitch for good projects in order to bring certainty and focus back in the firm.
    Having said this, with the new leadership team in place the firm looks set for a better future ahead.

    Pros

    Compensation...especially for the analytics & consulting teams but not for others..

    Cons

    No standard procedures for employee appraisal/promotion/bonus disbursement, no growth, no new projects coming in....already a lot of attrition from a long period of time but no efforts by top management to check it, all in all not worth a try even

    Advice to Management

    please get your act together and make the employees believe in your vision by tangible actions instead of just words....
