    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Octopus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are none just don’t do it! They sell you a dollar sign dream but be prepared for the clicky culture stuck up people and no life outside the business they will work you to the bone!

    Cons

    Training was appalling no structure at all the team does not want to help just know how to point the finger and blame

    Advice to Management

    Just close down the business and start over with new people

    I have been working at Octopus

    Pros

    I started four weeks ago and I have to say that the people at Octopus are very friendly and welcoming. Everyone is upbeat and happy to talk to you regardless of what department you’re from. It’s a great working environment and I’m really happy to be here.

    Cons

    There are no cons. I have a message for anyone considering joining Octopus; be confident and proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
