Current Employee - Food Service Worker II in Oklahoma City, OK

I have been working at University of Oklahoma full-time for more than a year

Pros

Benefits are extremely generous with teacher's retirement still an option. Basic medical insurance for the employee is 100% covered.

Cons

Low, unfairly distributed wages, even for Oklahoma, and very difficult to climb the corporate ladder.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overhaul the pay system to allow for merit raises AND seniority raises.

    I worked at University of Oklahoma full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Technology was top notch, professors were very knowledgeable with open office doors, provided plenty of computing power to get the job done.

    Cons

    The overall feeling I had was that of a hands-off growth approach to grad students with little unsolicited advice or guidance given. For some, this may prove challenging.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at University of Oklahoma for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, solid schedule, employee activities, good balance between work and family life, extended paid time off during holidays.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for advancement, and salary increase. Wages seem to be typically lower than what the current market offers. State funded agency, so raise and salary are dependent on state education budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider reviewing the procedures for advancement and hiring practices. Review job requirements and qualifications, in comparison to wages that are being offered by other institutions. Expectations do not align with salary provided. Although there are budget limitations, realigning work duties, and maybe providing additional non-monetary perks ( summer hours, additional casual dress days, etc) can cushion the "bitterness" of lack of funding for raises, or low wages.
