Great work environment

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I never been exposed to such room for growth. In a space of a year I've grown so much mentally and psychologically. There is an air of peace in the work place and management is really hands on when it comes to ruuning the business.

Pros

Structure (Open door policy - Management)

Cons

The pressure of reaching target

It has been a wonderful experience working for Octogen.

There is a room for growth. Moving from one department to another and learning different work has been the most exciting Journey. Working for client services, you face new and different challenges daily which grooms you and prepares you for being a leader one day.

Best for new graduates

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.

Call Centre Receptionis

I come into a very relaxed office and everyone arrives at 8h00 sits down and starts to work. The office is a hive of activity trying to contact struggling people to help them survive life as we know it today. The Management is always busy improving our office environment. The office is a multi cultured office with a vast overall happy feel. The hardest part of my job is when it is quite and no calls coming in. the best part is when it is busy and I am appreciated for my hard work.

Pros

office hours are very acceptable

Cons

The salary is not so good but good for what I am doing.

Productive and fun working

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.
