    Pros

    Amazing product, amazing vision, amazing people.

    Cons

    Do not value salespeople. No stock. This year, no RSUs allocated even for top performers. Executive vision is that "salespeople have the opportunity to make a lot." Well, virtually EVERY other peer company has decent RSU packages. Makes it very hard to recruit, and makes salespeople apt to leave at the drop of a hat. Top management does not value salespeople or sales managers. With no 401K match, no RSUs, what are salespeople to think? Executive team even decided that for this FY, there would be no stock allocation for anyone in sales. This is 100% contrary to what I was told during the hiring process.

    I have been working at Okta full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Rapid growth means opportunity for upward growth or lateral moves within - Incredible culture and work perks - Surrounded by brilliant people - Equity - The co-founders are still grounded as they gain fame (and fortune!) - Everyone drinks the kool-aid

    Cons

    - Hyper growth means sometimes ideas/processes are launched half baked - No 401k match - Everyone drinks the kool-aid

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

    Pros

    90% of the culture is great, most people are great and are hardworking and the benefits are not bad.

    Cons

    10% of the culture is not so great - I feel like it's a not so talked about trait of the company that doesn't get addressed. Theres favoritism for some people that put in half the work and show up for the job half the time. Not to mention, the no 401k match is not cool too.

    I have been working at Okta full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - one of the fastest growing companies in tech - high quality colleagues - everyone is a big believer in the company mission and product - tons of things to do, but work life balance is very good depending on your department - certainly better compared to other companies. We come in at 9, leave at 5. - opportunities to grow in your career - they pay your cell phone and internet bill

    Cons

    - low name recognition despite being far and away the leader in the category - no bonuses, no ,401k match, food is just ok but new vendor is coming in

    I have been working at Okta full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Supportive manager who encourages growth and development - No micro-managing - Lots of transparency and everyone is honest - Flexible PTO! - Free food and snacks (Lots of healthy AND unhealthy options. It suits everyone!) - Friendly execs who actually know you by your first name! - Everyone at the company is genuine and really believes in the product. They're not superficial and didn't join the company just because of the unlimited food and good perks.

    Cons

    - Short staffed and need to hire more resources as we're rapidly expanding. - Not a lot of work life balance. Not a 9-5 job. - No 401k matching

    Great people, great product, great values, great culture, great leadership - the list of great goes on!

    Cons

    It's honestly hard to come up with any cons - the pace is fast, but it's exciting! Would like to see 401k match, but overall the benefits are good.
