    I worked at Octo Consulting Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My coworkers are great people that work hard for the client. We spend many long hours together making sure we meet the mission.

    Cons

    Leadership are nice people, but boy do they have some shady business practices behind closed doors and especially at the HQ site. They play favorites and will work you 60+ hours a week without batting an eye or give you fair overtime pay. There has been a lot of turnover since the Private Equity firm acquired them. All the good leaders I worked with have left and it's a shame how management treated them on the way out. Culture and morale has taken a significant nose dive the last year. Don't believe the posts on their company page or social media, it's all PR management and comes from inside the special cliche. Many people are looking to get out right now.

    I worked at Octo Consulting Group

    Pros

    Alcohol in the break room! The firm likes to drink!

    Cons

    Expected to work long hours and weekends. If you don’t your time will be limited with the firm. While working there staff working at HQ consistently get praised and promoted for simply doing their jobs. All staff working on site are basically on there own.

    Awesome CEO and staff, super culture, great benefits and solid capabilities

    can't really think of any BUT don't think you are going to hide at this company. Prepare to grind. If you are motivated and want to work and grow - this is the place for you!
