    I have been working at Octagon

    Pros

    get to work on numerous different accounts and environments; have the opportunity to work both back end and front end side of marketing industry.

    Cons

    need to do a long process for promotions; HR is not very helpful and you need to contact hiring managers yourself if you want to get promoted. Also, there is always a long interview process as it takes 1 HR interview, at least 2 hiring manager interviews, and an additional work evaluation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    higher lower level employee salaries.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Octagon.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was simple. Applied and within one month heard back from HR. I was interviewed over the phone, it seemed like it went well. I was told that within two weeks I would hear back and I could contact my interviewer if I had any questions in the meantime. Two weeks went by and I heard nothing. Sent an email to the interviewer and got no response.
