    Current Employee - Manager in Tahlequah, OK

    I have been working at Cherokee Nation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The knowledge that I am helping the people in my tribe, there is always something interesting going on, one of the best employers in a very rural area where jobs can be scarce. Many types of professional and stepping stone opportunities available, especially in health care. Liberal vacation and other benefits, great 401K and opportunities for training and advancement.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    You really need to be identifiably native american to get in the door.

    I have been working at Cherokee Nation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Though the pay rates are often under the median for the area, the health benefits are better than average. Office culture varies by the departmental unit. Training funds are usually in the budget. The native culture is alive in some departments but in some you may never know it's a tribe or a government. Many kind and compassionate people work there with a zeal for the services they offer the citizens under their programs. Look for many job openings coming up as many elders will be entering retirement.

    Cons

    Though training funds are often budgeted, it's near impossible to get training approved. Personal growth really depends on your manager and their willingness to work with you. Mangers have very little oversight of their actions so some take an autocratic approach to management. Some managers love to micro manage. Religiosity could stand to be scaled back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not sure if a consultant could do good for the organization due to tribal cultural undertones which would be near impossible to change.
