    I have been working at OGE Energy full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at OGE Energy full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at OGE Energy full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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