    I have been working at Octopus full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The culture at octopus is strong, effort is clearly made from the top down on this. It's noticeable compared to other companies I've worked in. Charity, social events and to have an entrepreneurial spirit in your work. Everything is based around making it simple for the customer and staff work hard to achieve that. Not everything is perfect, but what is? I only hope as the business grows it doesn't lose the spirit it still has right now. The initiatives to train staff are very much appreciated.

    Cons

    Hours could be a bit shorter. The salaries can be bettered elsewhere, but the culture and benefits can make up for that. If hours were 9-5 or 5:30 (or early finish Friday??) it may make the lower salaries slightly easier to swallow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving, don't lose your values as the company grows. Staff are respected at Octopus, keep it up.
