    I worked at Arvest Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of tools and support.

    Cons

    Their policy manual on their 401k enrollment said one thing (in two different places), but their practice of when they first put employees into the plan was different (linger wait).

    Advice to Management

    Don’t change an employee’s set-up/situation when they are still in the middle of training for the position you are changing.
