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

    Pros

    Extremely rapid growth and work with very smart people. Making connections that will last throughout my career.

    Cons

    Rapid growth means more employees, which from a sales perspective means smaller territories.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you're always scaling appropriately, rather than adding unnecessary headcount and processes.

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

    Pros

    Okta is genuinely the best place I've ever worked. My team is friendly, intelligent, helpful, egoless- these adjectives apply to my manager and everyone else I've met as well. The product is amazing, check the industry analysts... every company says they're the industry leader but WE ARE. The benefits are good, PTO, paid holidays, health/dental/vision etc, stock in the company which is real money since we're... a public company. In addition to the people, the product, and benefits- the pay is really good. Easily above market and then some. I'm a remote employee and I feel completely trusted and empowered to do my job. My manager is incredibly supportive and helpful, never overreaching. I feel confident that career growth is completely up to me. There is an obvious career path and if I continue to work hard and prove myself, just like the many before me, the rest will take care of itself.

    Cons

    I legitimately can't think of anything except there's no matching 401K at this point. I've seen some negative reviews, I'm sure there have been folks that experienced a less stellar time than I am but don't let the reviews deter you. If you apply for a job and have any concerns, I recommend using LinkedIn to check in with potential coworkers to get a better idea of their day-to-day and overall experience.

    Advice to Management

    Onward and upward. Continue to have trust in your employees, continue to let them captain their ships.

    Open dialogue, fun young coworkers, casual work environment, great pay and incentives, flexible hours, fast promotional track

    Cons

    Classic tech bro-y culture which is sometimes fun but often a hindrance to productivity, diversity, welcomeness and company culture

    Advice to Management

    Hire more women in management, hiring beyond the same colleges and networks
