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 Management

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

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

    Pros

    People are super friendly. Company meetings are energetic. The perks are the best I have seen at any hi tech company that I have worked at (over 5 hi tech companies). Everyone works on MacBook Airs. Great location near the SF Ballpark. Lunch 3 times per week. My department head and team are open to new ideas in how to get work done and is very collaborative. We seem to have hired over 150 employees in the past year and the excitment you can feel internally.

    Cons

    Since I am new to the company, not to many downsides yet, I am in my honeymoon period but so far I am very impressed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the open dialog between executives and employees with the weekly meetings with your transparency.

    Pros

    Energetic environment that encourages innovation and input. Leadership that is focused and transparent. A product you are proud to build and support. Continual improvements as needs arise.

    Cons

    Business is growing so quickly that at times we all get double/triple booked. A great problem to have.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    We get frustrated juggling calendars too. But as you said, it’s a good problem to have.
