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

Pros

Great benefits and office culture. Exciting industry to be a part of. Great place for young professionals and recent graduates to start their career.

Cons

Difficult to advance or measure what it takes to earn a promotion which can become very frustrating over time. Other than that, it is a great place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employees need more guidance and encouragement regarding their career path within the company.

    I have been working at Octagon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Major long-term clients such as BMW, Master Card, Sprint, Home Depot. Culture is pretty relax. Not as laid back as a full creative agency, but the overall culture is fun.

    Cons

    Pay isn't that great for the amount of hours and travel involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's difficult for new people to understand the organization and its priorities beyond their individual account or team.
