    Great place to start a career

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsLots of intelligent and personable people to work with and learn from across many technical disciplines. Company has grown rapidly so there are expected to be many opportunities for advancement in the future.

    ConsCompensation is sometimes slow to keep up with increased responsibility and efficiency of employee. Company has grown rapidly and has not hired employees to match the rate of growth. Company expects employees to work hard and efficiently to produce the work of multiple employees at other companies. This environment may not be for everyone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrow, advance, trust, and compensate talented employees to sustain company growth. Delegate responsibilities to those capable to achieve more results.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst company i've ever worked for!

    Senior Programming Analyst (Former Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsThey do things very old-fashioned. If you're old and don't like change this is the place for you.

    ConsThey will lie to you about salary, job duties, responsibilities, and benefits. Supervisors will abuse you and expect you to take it with a smile. You will never get promoted, a raise, stock options, or your own office even if you're promised these things. It's the worst place you could work for...anywhere else would be better! The Human Resources department is virtually non-existent, as well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't lie to your employees about salary, job duties, responsibilities, and benefits. Make sure you hire people that are fit for the job instead of assuming they will just "catch-on" even if they have no experience doing the job when it requires years of previous experience.

    Warehouse/ Production picking high end electrical parts and motors, including mother boards and switches.

    Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsNew, clean and up to date Warehouse with great working equipment and Employees. Everyone seems to work very well together to complete job task and work production orders. And after 6 months the company give you a sign on bonus with a lot of training and upgrade courses the company will pay for. A lot of room to grow and move up in pay and skill.

    ConsPoint system with no room to change job for 1 year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo many different Supervisors to deal with, all with different ways to complete same job tasks at hand, this is due different day and night shift work through the week leaving plenty of room for mistakes with data entry and material handling and theft.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I liked my job there, but the management left a lot to be desired.

    Warehouse Associate (Former Employee)
    Longview, TX

    ProsThey have some good people working there.

    ConsThe benefits are low-standard; the management treats most employees badly; a lot of the employees are usual grumpy & in a bad mood, and walking on eggshells, due to the attitude of management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou should revamp your management staff & find managers/supervisors who know how to talk to employees in a productive manner, & who won't take things personally when someone comes to them with an issue.

    Getting much better. Pay is increasing for workers, we are no longer working 60+ hours a week.

    Line Engineer (Current Employee)
    Longview, TX

    ProsNew president is really great. Still face troubles a lot of companies do, lay offs, some less-than-capable employees, but overall a decent place to work.

    ConsSome employees seem to choose speed over quality, and letting other people deal with their mistakes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAaon is going in a better direction. keep on the path of quality and taking responsibility for mistakes.

    Pretty easy and laid back.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are a lot of nice people at AAON. If pay is not a problem then you can just work your 8 hours and live life.

    ConsNot much room for advancement of your career. Only a few good engineering management positions. Pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompetitive pay would be nice.

    Review of initial work experience

    Engineering (Former Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsRespected life work balance. Hours were manageable. Profit sharing was a nice bonus.

    ConsExtremely antagonistic relationship between engineering and manufacturing. Management cultivated a culture of fear.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease treat your employees like human beings, and require them to treat one another as such.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible Turnover Rate, Treats lower level employees like dirt.

    Line Engineer (Current Employee)
    Longview, TX

    ProsA small company that is constantly improving.

    ConsTurnover rate of employees is extremely high for a multitude of reasons. 1. The pay is very low, especially for engineers. 2. They treat their lower level employees like teenagers that need to be constantly monitored and punished for bad behavior with no benefits for being a good employee. I have seen many people who were good employees and worked very hard for the company fired for coming in a bit late a few times. Obviously tardiness is undesirable, but the benefit of the employee to the company should be considered before firing is even an option.

    Having said that, since the change over from Scott Absjornson as president to Sam Neale the relationship between management and the employees has improved significantly, but there is still a long way to go before it is on par with average companies of its size.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemove or adjust the attendance points system. While it may seem to weed out people with tardiness issues, but it is costing you employees who have been focused and hardworking otherwise.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
