Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

Invented the cloud identity space. Enterprise software: quality, performance and security the top priorities. Very strong developers with tremendous sense of ownership. Approachable and transparent executives.

Cons

Enterprise software is not always sexy. Code is complex, and since we are growing fast there are not a lot of people with tribal knowledge. Quality automation flappy and hence in the way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give engineers more say in what we build.

    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

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart, hard working people here. The leadership is great, and is being very thoughtful about the growth and direction of the company. The product is awesome, and I feel that we are really creating a cool culture here.

    Cons

    Its still a start-up - there is lots of work to be done so work/life balance could be better. The leadership is very loyal to "old-timers" even when they are not producing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being smart about our growth, and maintain the great level of transparency that we have.
