    Thanks for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you can’t find an appropriate work-life balance. Octopus has always been a busy and buzzy place especially with recent increased call volumes linked to a spike in product demand; we are recruiting more people to ease the pressure. We would really appreciate if you could get in touch to provide feedback on how we can improve any element of our training, be it the 2 month ‘classroom’ based training programme for BDMs, or the side by side coaching and weekly training.

    I started four weeks ago and I have to say that the people at Octopus are very friendly and welcoming. Everyone is upbeat and happy to talk to you regardless of what department you’re from. It’s a great working environment and I’m really happy to be here.

    Cons

    There are no cons. I have a message for anyone considering joining Octopus; be confident and proactive.
