    Good Environment For Motivated People

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity here to come up with good ideas, and to take initiative. If you're looking to make your mark in some way and improve the work place, the company will recognize your efforts and take care of you. There are always interesting problems to solve, and plenty to keep you on your toes and prevent you from getting bored.

    Cons

    The office is in the midst of some transition, so things can feel a bit chaotic at times.

    Pros

    good benefits great COVID-19 support for employees awesome co-workers

    Cons

    Communication can be challenging within the company. NOTE: This has been acknowledged by the SLT and they are making strides to communicate important knowledge to all groups and teams as rapidly as possible.

    Pros

    Fantastic people, flexible work environment, cool technology. At Octo you have every opportunity to become involved in the projects that interest you. There is always work to be done and self-directed curious people can really succeed here.

    Cons

    Octo is undergoing a shift from a narrow technology provider to a platform provider. Changing environments can be challenging for some people.

    Great place if you like being a 2nd class citizen

    Pros

    The American CEO left the summer of 2018. The company is run by the Italian corporate office now. There is American senior management, but they seem powerless. Italian equals say different things than American leadership. The Italian corporate office treats American employees like children who do know their customers or what we are doing. Octo is transitioning from telematics solutions to IoT solutions, but the path is unclear to many of us. Stress is high, pay can be low, no bonuses this year and the entire US team is not respected by the corporate office. Many of us that stayed wanted to give new management a chance but now that we are past the holidays it may be time to rethink.

    Cons

    There may be a lot more job opening in the US office. Flexible work environment. The new Head of North America really cares about us but seem powerless to the Italian politics.

    A waste of time

    Pros

    Innovative space, great colleagues,

    Cons

    Upper-management is a joke, highly political environment, marketing throwing money away on useless "sponsorships" rather than investing in IT. Poor quality, declining marketshare (customers leaving). Failure to innovate and push market, rather than "slow-follower". Unreliable.

    Change is always difficult, in particular the way it impacts employees. Often there are short term disruptions when organizations implement new long term strategies designed to realize immeasurable benefits to the organization and its employees. We were saddened you chose to leave the organization and wish you the best in your future endeavors.
