    I have been working at Octagon full-time

    Pros

    There are great people at Octagon. They're not all utilized as they should be but there are wonderful people. Also, it's a very enjoyable industry to work in.

    Cons

    Unfortunately there are very little growth opportunities and so many amazing employees are walking out the door all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can identify the issues but for some reason no one will make changes. Do what you need to do and you can greatly improve things.

    Pros

    Good industry exposure, flat hierarchy

    Cons

    Somewhat long hours and stressful work environment relative to compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand the office as necessary to accommodate company expansion to avoid overworking employees. Personal and professional advancement very solid due to high level of interaction between different levels of management.
