I have been working at Okta full-time (less than a year)

Pros

This is a great company that is growing fast. Everyone is extremely cooperative and the opportunity for advancement is apparent in all departments. Add in a probable IPO and Okta is a pretty great spot to work.

Cons

Like any startup in high growth phase, resources can be scarce. Expect to work longer hours in an effort to close deals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be great to have recurring technical training in order to alleviate the burden on the SE team.

    Pros

    I've found that the talent and simply the quality of people Okta attracts is unprecedented. The leadership at Okta truly makes an effort to pave a path of development and growth if that's what you're looking for. Really a great place to grow your career and learn from the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Okta has more of a buttoned-up culture. Not to say we don't have a great time getting to know our colleagues with side events, but it's definitely not a priority at Okta.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the transparency as we continue to grow!

    Formality across the groups at Okta varies. Identity Management is a serious issue, and customers deserve a high level of professionalism from us. That said, we dress comfortably, vigorously ... More

    Pros

    + High-growth -- onboarding new hires nearly every week
    + Transparency with upper management -- All-Hands every week discusses the ins and outs of the company to keep employees informed
    + Positive career growth trajectories -- do your job + go above and beyond and your chances of promotion are high
    + Good benefits -- catered lunches, stocked fridge, massages, wine&cheese events, and more
    + "Identity management is hot right now", the company is poised to be successful. Right space, right timing, solid leadership

    Cons

    + Very dynamic environment (which is also a positive) but certainly not for someone that thrives on stability and comfort in their every day work environment
