How is Okta Bellevue as a place to work for?

Trying to decide between some offers, wanted to get the inside scoop from some Okta folks.

My own impression has been excellent while interviewing, but what is your experience with:

1. Unlimited PTO: how much vacation do you actually end up taking while still feeling comfortable?
2. Okta integration network: do you feel the product and management has been going in a good direction?
3. General company benefits: anything that stands out for better or worse?
4. Immigration support: what happens if H1B extension gets rfe for example?
5. Tech stack/engineering: how engineering driven is the company in general and OIN specifically?
6. Small company feel: do you still get the small company feel or is it already as beauracratic was Microsoft/Amazon?

Im getting great vibes from Okta, but want to make sure I'm not overlooking something

    1. Unlimited PTO is a silicon valley gimmick. You take more then 24 and your manager will let you know "how you are in highlight" from upper management. Plus folks can always get preferential treatment based how long and how you eat, laugh with. It is better to have fixed entitled vacation

    2. Yes, product it solid but of late growing pains such ballooning of unskilled employees/managers

    3. Actually there is no Signon bonus, no 401k and just this year we started annual bonus so yet to see...buy the number can only be as high as 6-7%

    4. Immigration is Fragomen and I don't know what you mean by "support". I m yet to come across any deniels for extensions...new joinee....who knows...if they got transfer denied and never joined

    5. Java and monolith

    6. It is no small.compang feeling. It is similar to big companies

      We do get espp, and it is our best perk. You can take unlimited vacation well you retire

    4 . Immigration support - employee has to pay for premium processing for i140 and if you leave before 3 years - you have to reimburse 😔

      OP
      Employee has to pay for i140 premium at Microsoft too. Reimburse what? Like the whole i140 lawyer's cost?
