    Wonderful people, enormous amount of red tape

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOGE 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.

    ConsUnfortunately, 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 Senior ManagementManagement 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Switch & Bait

    Good values, good people, few opportunities for young professionals.

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

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

    ConsNot much room for advancement, "slot blocking".

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

    Engineer

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsStable company with great benefits. 9/80 schedule or half day Fridays. Comfortable work environment. Very safety conscious. HR is always very friendly and helpful. Senior management is very transparent in sharing business stratigies.

    ConsNot challenging work at times. Lot of micro managers and control freaks. Inter departmental issues for power struggle.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

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

    Challenging and rewarding environment constrained by regulatory requirements

    MIS (Current Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsStarting to think more progressively than a typical utility
    Challenging projects
    A culture of nice people

    ConsRegulators at state and Federal level limit ability to innovate
    Many are resistant to any change
    Culture of nice people means some avoid conflict and occasionally complain to others about those they won't confront

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to ensure that recognition to those who succeed is given openly to all members

    The people are great, but difficult to work across groups. They are very "old school" in their ways and resist change.

    Analyst (Current Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsGreat people to work for & with. Decent compensation. The compensation isn't bad for a company this size.

    ConsPeople across groups are resistant to working with each other and tend to be very set in their ways. Growth and change tends to be very slow. While there are many regulatory reasons not to let certain groups work together, this company seems to have embraced the concept in most departments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on getting people to accept and champion change. Additionally, promote working effectively between groups to gain much needed efficiency.

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

    Great employees, not so great management

    Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsGreat co-workers! Everyone is like a family once you get in. The 401K Matching is 150% which is lovely and Team$hare is great!. If you are into community service they give you paid hours and plenty of opportunity.

    ConsManagement is basically like a high school click. (Watch Means Girls and that's how management is ran.) Some people will train you but most won't and they don't care. Also some people are very unprofessional in management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a class on what is a leader v. manager and you should be more of a leader....

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
