Account Director - Mastercard (Former Employee) – Norwalk, CT – 18 April 2017
- Everyday is different with a new set of challenges - Time management is important - Senior leadership cares for their employees - Octagon cares about its culture - The most enjoyable part of the job is the people you work with
Work hard, play hard. Octagon is a great place to start your career. They offer lots of tools (training classes, guest speakers, etc...) to help you develop your skill set, however, your actual career advancement may be a bit more challenging depending on the account you work on.

I enjoyed working for this company. It is an award winning marketing firm and I enjoy the clients and people I work with. The atmosphere is great, I also get the benefit to travel which is a great experience.

Good company, great people and a lot of perks with work, low compensation and long hours. Octagon gives the opportunity to work with several corporate brands and get great account management and client service experience.
Good to start your career, but not for the long haul
Senior Account Executive (Current Employee) – Rogers, AR – 16 November 2015
Depending on your account it can be a very fun position. It's great to start out your career because you get some great experience. Like most sports marketing positions pay is not great. I do feel like they struggle to train new talent. It's very much a sink or swim mentality.
company with great success and happiness ,work commitment
IT Officer (Former Employee) – Baghdad – 12 October 2015
stick to job tasked instantly , I had learned to be a job commitment and got an experience for many software , the was a great respect ,work commitment and sense of hummer among the co-workers in the brake, the hardest part is when the employer in rush and should finish the task so quickly. the most enjoyable part is the great relations among the other employees.
Senior Account Executive, Events and Hospitality (Current Employee) – Norwalk, CT – 31 August 2015
Octagon is a large agency that has great clients. It offers people who are new to the industry great opportunities to learn the business of sports marketing. However the way they treat their employees in some cases is not the best, being a large agency sometimes good quality work is overlooked.
