    Pros

    None. Three CEO in three Years, three business plans in three years. Management is most confused consulting or product development ? Sr. Data scientist or junior developer. They still have free Boos and ping pong table :).

    Cons

    Telent is leaving faster then snow comming down in Boson. nothing left on floor all empty. Please do not read other reviews which are total bogus. No one cares what you doing ? Hiring and firing on month to month bases. Less revenue then fire, new project then hire... Keep it simle is their motto. Pardon me for being point blank.

    Advice to Management

    NONE. Pack up your bags and enjoy summer, Since you are not paying any vacation pay or severence, enjoy all the saved money. Karma will catch up to you soon,

    Pros

    1.) The best reason to join this company is only if you do not have any other opportunities .
    2.) Another best thing is if you are looking for free friday food

    Cons

    Can give a whole list of cons which would exceeds 100 times the cons

    1.) Worst management ever
    2.) The number of people leaving the company is exponential.
    3.) Work is not organized.
    4.) They would hire bunch of IITians from india and after 4 years they will become managers who would not know how to code. So they have no idea how much effort it would take to complete a task. They keep pushing you till you broke down.
    5.) If you join as a junior they will literally give you manual labor tasks. You will not learn a single thing and would end up in this company for a long time doing the excel work.
    6.) Teams are located across the globe . so you will end up working 24*7 . Work distribution is the worst.

    7.) work life balance is the worst among 3 companies i worked ,

    Advice to Management

    Please try to make sure people are satisfied with what they are doing. No one will be able their mouth if you want to talk face to face. So one-one meeting is not the way to know employees difficulties .

    Pros

    Good Work-life balance (That's it). Nothing else is spectacular about Opera Solutions India

    Cons

    Very High Attrition (upto 75%) for IIT Hires in India, as a result no good managers are left, only mediocre leadership is left at the firm. A lot of discrimination between US and India Employees (promotions, work-life balance, responsibility), NO Travel for majority of the India office, Every few months people say the company will improve but all efforts go down the drain. Dearth of projects (half the office sits unstaffed), no opportunities for growth. Was once a good consulting firm, but this new data analytics space that they want to function out of is totally in the air!

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees - lot of insecurity out there, improve the office culture, hire managers and leaders

    Pros

    None. The COOs do deals that make no sense and only prop up their own egos.

    Cons

    Are known for not paying people for untaken vacation time when laid off or fired - whick is illegal. The COOs are famous for running people into the ground and then firing them. The current theory is they have compromising photos of the board otherwise they'd be fired. No one knows why they're still allowed to be there.

    Advice to Management

    Close your doors.

    Pros

    Not sure. I like to find the good in everything but it would be a stretch here.

    Cons

    Management lacks emotional intelligence. Attrition is so high you meet someone one week, they are gone the next. No one seems to know who does what. Internal process is cumbersome and absurd. People walk around with scowls on their face. I would be very afraid to come here unless you are desperate for work and have no other options.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe the new CEO will change things but it wont happen soon. I would look very closely at management.....

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, Friday lunch and informal atmosphere

    Cons

    All negative - 0% transparency, Upper management is horrible and doing politics especially in s/w, no year end increment only on promotion, no technical people on upper management side. Earlier it was more then 50 folks in s/w now it is less then 30 and no recruitment. your future in hand of upper management (no 360 feedback).

    Advice to Management

    Please remove upper management and hire some talented technical managers.

    Pros

    Smart coworkers, very global so you get to interact across every time zone possible often in the same day, new CEO who is just begging for someone to lead so great opportunity to look smart even if you have no clue, high turnover allows for ample opportunity for those with no experience to try out senior roles and pad their resumes for the next gig.

    Cons

    Everybody who is smart is leaving so fast that you may not have enough time to update your linked in profile before the next job search. Benefits change every year so you can't possibly figure out if your getting screwed unless you compare them to normal companies.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the games you are playing with people's lives you haven't done a thing for employees over the past two years and you seem more intent on screwing people over than actually building a business please stop and for once treat employees with respect perhaps you could take some sensitivity training since you are basically rehashing the same failing strategy year over year so you must have some free time.
