      Pros

      The product suite is growing a lot. They are realistic about a work-life balance. Unlimited PTO is a blessing. This can be a pro and a con but you are paid hourly and overtime is alright but you have to get it approved by the manager. The benefits package is great!!!!

      Cons

      There was a boom in the DC office for hiring once that happened the pipeline grew for the company but it now means more time in seat as an SDR. Expect to be in seat for 2 years or more. You can't interview for other positions until you are 18 months of being in position.

      Masquerades as an SF Tech Company

      Pros

      Stock price went up when I was working there.

      Cons

      his is the slowest moving company when it comes to decisions. When a decision is made, be prepared for management to change their mind at the last minute. Okta chooses less superior vendors to do business with to make a business connection and gloat about it...leaving the employees to deal with working with horrible products. IT is a disaster. Multiple requests into IT were never responded to, including IT management. It should not take IT 3 weeks to provision access to an Okta app after you get approval. This team is the epitome of lazy and has one of the poorest management teams I have ever seen. The IT management team needs to be gutted. Be ready for your managers to talk about you behind your back and share personal info and concerns from private meetings with your team.

      In a growing company there's always a lot of technological churn, and some of the supporting systems need some overhaul.
