    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei Okta gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    The culture all cascades down from the top leadership, which I think is great–they're really focused on doing the right things for the right reasons and very transparent with the company which I found refreshing and honest. I'm glad to have worked for a company that really cares for their people and their community giving/volunteer programs as well as employee training. • Benefits and perks are good • Smart people...

    While most people there are great, Okta's not immune to a few bad apples. Unfortunately, a few key players (2 of my 4 previous managers, to be specific) were/are inept and poor leaders ruining team morale. I think, for the most part, if you're in most of the other teams, you'll find happy and smart people all hustling and working together as well as you can expect from a largish company. It's still the wild west internally:...

    Keep up the transparency-people really appreciate that.

    Pros

    Great company with very strong products that customers truly love to use. Very strong culture driven and carried by the two founders.

    Given the growth you need to bring you a-game every day to keep pace.

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Incredibly talented people who happen to also be incredibly smart. Great cultures amongst different departments & functions that contributes to an overall mission and sense of purpose. By far the most innovative and sexy identity provider/created the category. Lots of team outings, strong sense of organization across the board, perks like lunch, fitness programs and a gym in the brand new office. Friendships extend...

    Kontras

    Tough product to understand, but that’s not a real con. Only downside is being post IPO & more career pathing needed. Also RIP 301 Brannon.

    Rat an das Management

    The machine has been built-now pave the way for career development across the board. Lots of talent ready to take on the next challenge, but it doesn’t seem to be at Okta at times.

    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

    Kontras

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

    Rat an das Management

    - Stay grounded - Listen to your employees, they're brilliant - Todd & Freddy! I miss 301 Brannan because seeing you walk through the sales floor every now and then was genuinely inspiring... now it feels like you're locked away in the upper floors of 100 first

    Ich habe weniger als ein Jahr bei Okta als Vollzeit gearbeitet

    Pros

    My coworkers were friendly and supportive. No-meetings are allowed to be scheduled on Thursdays and it's a company-wide WFH day. Decent comp package.

    Kontras

    The tech stack is a joke; monolithic Java stack, and Chef-based deployments. The process around planning is so heavy when it came to monthly and weekly sprint planning that I felt like I was constantly in meetings. Okta has a "Technical Program Management" that is basically a team of glorified Scrum Masters where the majority of them are non-technical. Okta felt like a rest and vest sort of company where I can't fathom...

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 3 Jahren bei Okta (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Okta is solving a hard problem. There are many other companies in this space that are not as big and as successful as Okta. So its fun to work on that problem and helping define the market. Everyone is smart, helpful, has a great growth culture/mindset. If you are early/late in your career, you will learn a lot and add a great bit to your resume. The co-founders (Todd and Freddy) are incredible and genuine leaders....

    Kontras

    Depending on the department, it can be pretty top heavy with a ton of management hierarchy. This really does suck. I think there are intentions to be transparent but it's poorly handled. There are also many people managers who are first-time managers because of how fast Okta grew - they are also learning this as they go and sometimes it doesn't work out too well.

    Rat an das Management

    Flatten the org structure!!!! Think about whether you really need so many "Directors" that are doing IC level work and micromanaging - not really sure the value a lot of them provide to the org. Provide the right training for the people managers on how to communicate (the few courses are good but offering them one or twice a year is not that helpful for them).
