No opinion of CEO

I worked at Octagon as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

paid for travel
great experience for recent college grads
young employees
fun, exciting colleagues
exposure to a lot of people and opportunities
experience may depend on tour manager/teammates

Cons

travel can become tiresome
contracted work- no future job guarantee
I really do not have very many complaints, the pay was a bit low, but there were a lot of upsides to opportunity- including per diem, paid for laundry, and free travel/hotels rooms
no benefits/insurance

    I have been working at Octagon full-time (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 Management

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