    Pros

    OGE has very friendly people working there. Most people have been there 10+ years because they like it so much. While the pay and benefits may not compete with the largest employers in OKC, they do have a nice pay structure and benefits. While I was working at OGE, I had little to no overtime for the years I was there.

    Cons

    It can be a bit slower paced company. Also, the company has been around for 100+ years, and processes are pretty engrained. There can be an initial resistance to technological change by the older workers. Also, because of the longevity of employment at OGE, it can be hard to find promotion opportunities. Oftentimes, you are waiting for someone to retire.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I was very pleased with management. I would have like to have had more training opportunities, but on the whole, management did their jobs well.

    Pros

    Still has the work and family values of a traditional utility.

    Cons

    New non-utility members find the environment a struggle due to lack of technology adoption by the company. That is changing, but at a slow rate. Data centric decision making using technology is not the lead for company members. Gut feel and traditional experience rings through as the primary decision making criteria.

    Pros

    The people who do the work are top notch, they know what they are doing and they do it. Everyone carries their own weight.

    Cons

    No opportunities to advance, positions dont open up often but when they do, they are pre-filled.

    Advice to Management

    take a look at your managers, they do not clearly communicate expectations.

    Pros

    Pay, Education assistance, Safety training, stable stock.

    Cons

    This company absolutely has no regard for its employee's any longer. They have taken already reduced staffing and reduced staffing even further while still expecting a high level of productivity. They dangle people's jobs with the threat of re org while still expecting them to care about their work or furthermore the company. No one is happy across the board and have seen some fall out losing good people primarily to Devon Energy. Executive management is an absolute joke and are completely untrustworthy and more so immoral. This is coming after years of waiting and with holding my opinion waiting for better decisions to be made having them never come.

    Advice to Management

    The only hope at this point is the hope that new upper management will come in.

    Pros

    OGE pays well and offers great benefits. People are really nice. In general, managers are interested in improving their employees' careers. Each location and department is different, but employees are generally satisfied.

    Values and desired beliefs are serious business at OGE. They believe in doing the right thing.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, seniority sometimes counts more than talent or hard work. It is really, really hard to push through the red tape and inertia to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Management knows the score. Fundamentals are fine at OGE. Customers are happy and profits are good. It's the future that's at risk because the company can't move fast enough. They are working on it and they don't need my advice.

    Pros

    Some very nice, hardworking people, at least at my site.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement, "slot blocking".

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your newly hired professionals. Don't allow them to become stuck in remote locations with little interaction with other professionals.
