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

Pros

Without a doubt, the biggest pro: the people. Okta's culture is the second biggest pro: Very heads down over here, with a startup feel. And, it doesn't hurt to get free food & drinks frequently and regularly

Cons

Incredibly demanding, work/life balance is difficult to maintain

Advice to Management

Keep making the bottom of the totem pole feel important and taken care of - it is appreciated!

    Pros

    Overall, I've been very satisfied with my work at Okta. The culture is young and characteristic of many start-ups (ping-pong, beer on tap, etc.). Everyone is very driven and there is large potential for career growth. Our goals - individual, team, corporate - are clearly articulated and everyone buys in to to vision.

    Cons

    Being the market leader means there are grueling hours, and it does affect the work/life balance. Because we are growing so quickly, the company has not anticipated each change and there is some trial and error.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the employees; culture and happiness are key.

    Pros

    Okta is a place full of hard working and sincere people. Everyone around here works extremely hard and takes their jobs seriously. The appreciation and treatment of the company towards their employees is exemplary. Your contributions are always recognized. Not to forget the great company culture where there is transparency & management is always open for ideas.

    Cons

    - No free parking in the city. The garages nearby cost $10-$15/day
    - Too much awesomeness to handle :)

    Advice to Management

    You are all doing a great job! Keep up the culture of the company & save it from becoming too serious & bland!!
