    It's a great place to work (if you're on the top)

    Nov 30, 2022 - Solutions Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Good Culture - Lots of growth opportunities for the product - They care about employee well being - 401(k) matching added in 2022 - Nice centrally located offices in SF, Chicago, DC, and internationally

    Cons

    - Too many managers - Too much focus on SEs to manage the sales process (this started 4 months before I posted this review) - Compensation is far below market rates - The workforce is not really diverse. - There can be pay biases. Check with your team to see if you're making enough for your role.

    Okta Position

    Nov 30, 2022 - Account Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Okta is a pretty standard place to work. I appreciate the time off and flexible schedule. It's a big company though, so the process to get things done takes more time.

    Cons

    I'd say support from management is lacking. There is a lot going on since the merger with Auth0, so managers are more focused on putting out fires than really helping to grow your career/ strategize on professional improvement.

    Some turbulence, but Okta can weather the storm

    Nov 19, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great benefits, no limits on WFH, and great product set. CEO is transparent and prioritizes his employees. Much respect to Todd M. Expect Okta to make it through this rough economic phase just fine.

    Cons

    Massive turnover over the past 1.5 years has meant a lot of new people are still getting their footing. The people who made Okta's culture so great 2-3 years ago are fewer by the quarter. New team members are great, but new GTM leadership seems focused on making a big splash with unrealistic expectations.

    Great culture, but no room for growth

    Nov 21, 2022 - Senior Technical Support Engineer

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Excellent salary and stock incentives, probably the best PTO policy of any job I've ever had, solid team, mostly great people

    Cons

    No room for growth, in spite of all the promises of help to advance your career. It just doesn't materialize.
