    Not demanding, but not rewarding either.

    I have been working at ONEOK full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nice work-life balance with a somewhat flexible schedule. Nobody watches over you and lets you get things done.

    Cons

    Company is waaaay behind on compensation. Too much emphasis on 'market based' pay and reluctant to reward employees who consistently go above and beyond. When you do apply for an advancement internally you get blocked by your current management since you're "too valuable" to them but they refuse to promote or compensate.

    Pros

    2 weeks vac to start ,6% match on 401K,On site cafeteria, free parking, paid tuition assistance, full of friendly hardworking people.

    Cons

    Market based pay is well under actual market. WELL UNDER! 2014 strategic guide was all about Northern assets when existing assets need attention. Lack of wellness and healthcare programs for a Fortune 500 and still no GYM in corporate headquarters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at other successful companies that do the same business as we do and look at what they offer their employees. The motto is attract,develop, and retain yet a person with 10 years served can go less than a mile and work for a competitor making much more to start. Bright young people only start here to get work experience then leave to make money. It's the way it's always been.

    Pros

    2 weeks vac from start
    Average benefits

    Cons

    Where do I start......
    Market Based pay is a big sham. VP sat in the last meeting and simply stated that ONEOK will never be the top pay in any market. If you are just looking for top pay then ONEOK is not for you Per our VP.Then why is our CEO the top paid executive in Tulsa, OK? If I sat in a room with members from other energy companies in tulsa that do the same job I would be embarrased to bring up what I make yearly for the job. Your lower level supervisor's won't argue with you during reviews as they know this is true and losing people left and right because of it.

    Keep trying to push wellness programs to finally catch up to what the rest of the industry has had or been available for the last 5 years. Oneok just talks and preaches wellness. They don't offer anything you couldn't go out and get on your own dime and probably should. Should offer some benefit dollars for keeping fit and maintaining good health.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring up the payscale for your employee's that still perform and even try to go above and beyond. Most are still trying to do an exceptional job for you. Let the folks that simply show up and sit on their rumps reap the supposed benefits of the market based pay and reward the people that you would like to see stick around and devolop into to leaders of this company. Stop bringing in new hire trainee's at with '0" experience at pay that people with 5-10 years are barely at. Makes no sense and only angers the people that have fought,kicked, and scratched for every raise they have received.

    Position is a glorified secretary, not what it was hyped to be.

    Pros

    Do not see your supervisor for months at a time.
    Make your own schedule.
    Insurance covers domestic partners.
    Still give bonuses and shares of stock.

    Cons

    Compensation - salary, profit sharing, insurance compared to other pipelines in the area substantially lacking.
    Still has "Enron" mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It costs more to work in IL, IN, and WI. Do not base salaries on OK.
    People are leaving over salaries.
