*Dynamic work period!!! They even provide $500 bucks towards setting up your home office as a full-timers. Received as stipend of 1k as an intern to do something similar. *Im remote, but whenever I'm near an office I go in for the free snacks, drinks, and meals. The general ambiance/perks of the office is amazing and everyone is super duper friendly! *The pay is legit competitive plus you get stock ESP among a plethora of other benefits!! *Unlimited PTO and wellness days... leadership actually encourages using this!! Like if dynamic work wasn't great enough.... *Donation matching of up to $500 a year to any org thats approved... yo u can get your place of interest on the list... plus 4 days of PTO volunteer days... yes & yes * Everyone is super chill and there are no egos from my experience regardless of job title.
*There are some kinks still being worked out (career development etc) that a larger organization may have already worked out due to length of time around... but I'm sure Okta will eventually get there in these areas.1

Technically challenging. Great people to work with. They are the best in the business. If you would like to work for the best in the world and be challenged to be great then this is the perfect place!
Stock has taken a hit lately.

Despite the negative reviews, okta treats its employees A LOT better than most other companies do. But you won’t realize that until you leave. The company is still positioned to do well. A leader in the IAM space and still a lot of runway. It’s now a work life balance company. There’s predictability in the work. Not very many “we need this done yesterday” deadlines Generally, everyone here cares and wants to do good work (at least at a Director and below level. Can’t always say that about leadership)
I’ve been here quite a while and can say things were sooo much better 4+ years ago, specific to culture, efficiency, communication and real ownership of work. We seem to have lost our way with a lot of bad management hires. CEO needs a stronger team around him that can hold their own. Very few do this today. Pretty political. Everyone wants their hands on everything and credit for everything. Just calm down and let people do their job! Why so much red tape for everything? (It wasn’t this way a few years ago) Less options for career growth. Moving laterally is still fine, moving up the chain is tough. Not so great in diversity hiring.7
