    I worked at Octo Consulting Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great firm that provides excellent growth opportunities for talented and motivated consultants
    - Young and energetic workforce with strong talent levels
    - Dynamic leadership team that is serious about creating a fun and rewarding work environment, where everyone shares in the successes of the company
    - Very competitive salary with extremely generous benefits (great healthcare, PTO, 401(k) etc.). Many additional perks (such as free iPads, spot bonuses, frequent company dinners/happy hours, annual offsite)
    - As the leadership will proudly tell you: 'Octo has an extremly low jerk count compared to most workplaces'. They genuinely do - the company is filled with exceptionally nice people
    - Surprisingly mature infrastructure and support functions (for a smaller company)

    Overall, if you want to work for a dynamic consultancy that is causing a stir in the industry (in a good way), look no further than Octo. I spent 3 years there and loved every minute.

    Cons

    Very few. Occasionally the hours can be long, but no worse than any other companies in this industry. There have been challenges associated with growing so fast, but those have generally been well managed. The management team is quick to learn lessons and take action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Don't be afraid to shape a unique company in your own vision.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    - 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.
