    I have been working at Octagon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great experience opportunities exist for recent graduates to gain experience working in sports, and for a pretty competitive salary. It's an atmosphere for young professionals (relaxed, exciting, etc.) and you get to work with global brands.

    Cons

    Really poor communication from management, especially when you're not based in Norwalk. Very hard to get anyone to listen and respect you as an entry level/lower level employee. Often times feels like it will take years and years before you will get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder on keeping your lower level staff (AE's, SAE's, AM's) in the know about what is going on the company, make them feel like they are a part of something larger than just their daily account responsibilities.

    I worked at Octagon as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Smart and talented employees who have a unique perspective on the industry

    Cons

    Employees are content. There is no killer instinct and many are complacent with their effort level and accomplishments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motivate!
