    Pros

    Genuine interest in your growth and development. Tons of training and great opportunities to meet new people with internal contests and drawings. 401K is incredible if you stick with the company.

    Cons

    Regulations constantly change which makes keeping up a hassle. Also management sometimes is out of touch with front line employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the vested interest in employee growth. But be more aware of middle management's shortcomings.

    Pros

    Your coworkers are friendly and always willing to help you with anything you need. Bank of Oklahoma puts in a lot of time to train you on the propper procedures and invests in your future with great benefits and growth potential in a variety of areas. BOK also has employee outing where they give you the oppertunity to have fun outside of work with people from all over the banking footprint.

    Cons

    Sales goals can be tough some times but there are not to high.

    I have been working at Bank of Oklahoma full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The two positives for me was being able to interact with customers on a daily basis and really being able to help them financially (thats more of a personal thing) and the second would be PTO. 2 Weeks vacation, 1 week of Sick Leave and 1 week of Personal leave. I do miss that!

    Cons

    The pay was OK, after your first year you'll get about a 3 cent raise which is actually a slap in the face when you've been working your butt off to make the brach look good. There are good managers and bad ones, just hope you get a good one.
    Last but not least, the bank focuses a lot on sales, you have a goal every month, if you don't make it thats strike one. If you don't make it three months in a row you're fired. Just something to think about!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees a break sometimes! We are not robots, we have families, and life happens!

    Pros

    community involvement, great benefits, company has great reputation

    Cons

    they expect you to learn everything via boring modules, the training is awful,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more training classes and less modules, the point system keeps bankers from working together -- fighting each other for points makes for a terrible, unhealthy work environment which clients can and do sense

    Pros

    There are NO pros to work for this awful company!

    Cons

    Unprofessional management. Low salary and horrible benefits! If your not close friends or sleeping with someone in management you will not move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more professional.

    I worked at Bank of Oklahoma full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Conservative company with low turnover. Fair pay and good benefits. Excellent training program (ACT program). High visibility for hard working employees. Fairly flat hierarchy with room to move within company or within department.

    Cons

    A little slow to move high performing employees along. Pay is fair but not above average. Takes significant time invested in company to see career progress. Opportunity is there, but you may have to wait longer than you like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees more like the Energy companies in the area competing for employess and you will retain more top talent.

    I worked at Bank of Oklahoma full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid financial institution. Great corporate citizen in Tulsa, OK. Great training program for entry level tellers and management trainees. Most departments/positions offer a good work life balance. Great location.

    Cons

    The financial industry is notorious for paying low wages and BOK is no exception. Benefits, including paid time off, are also below average. The operations and IT areas are poorly managed, run like the manager's personal fiefdom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should be more in tune with staff level employees.

    Pros

    Good salary and excellent benefits package. Co-workers were wonderful people to work with.

    Cons

    This is Corporate America at its worst. Management is clueless how to relate to its employees. Massive micromanagement, WAY to much "top down" attitude of management towards employees. No room for recreation, relationship building or fun. Stuffy, corporate, political, shady behavior of management, with no accountability for their actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a friggin' clue. You're NOT all that and a bag of chips!
