The Octo culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) McLean, VA

Pros- Octo provides a collaborative work environment where you have the chance to work with everyone from executives to new hires. The company focuses on internal and external networking and ways for employees to share ideas.
- The company offers opportunities to grow professionally by taking part in new business pursuits, $5K per year in tuition reimbursement for educational growth, and the ability to participate on teams to coordinate social events and activities.
- Competive pay/raises and a very good benefits package.
- Management team that has been able to grow the business without sacrificing the company's core culture (balance of working hard, having fun, and growing).
- The stability of a larger company with a smaller company feel.

Cons- Implementing a number of internal processes (painful as company grows)

Advice to Senior Management- Continue communicating regularly with employees about the direction of the company and growth plans. It keeps employees feeling like they are key part of the company and its plans.

- Try to maintain the culture as the company grows.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
