If you are experienced and need to change your current job not ideal because you take a financial draw back. Growth is impossible. Your job is not secured.

Octogen is a great company to work for. The only challenge is there are no benefits at all so its more like hand to mouth kind of job. Growth opportunities are limited.

This being a smaller company as such, is quite a great establishment. The reasons for me to leave were mainly financially motivated as I needed to make more money.

Daily early meeting to discuss a prior day's performance. then reply to emails throughout the day, generate new business from leads obtained and handle all base clients queries. I learned to be tolerant to other co-workers despite the change in moods, and personalities. I manage my own work and time. The challenge is to bring new feet into the branch, but with quality referrals that can be achieved. To see the impact and change in a clients life, makes my day.

I have learned to work hand in hand with my team, as we have the same goal which is t reach our team target. I have learned to respect each individuals feelings. I have learned to be able to listen before I answer anything. The hardest part of the job is when its is so hard to reach target in that mouth no matter how hard you have worked, sometimes it was just out of my control The most enjoyable part is when my team reached their target and the manager decides to take us out for breakfast
Pros
Free Lunches, day off or sometimes half day off
Cons
working until 6 some weeks
