    Pros

    I have been at BOKF more than 5 years and have had every opportunity to grow my career. This company cares about their employees and seeing them succeed professionally and personally.

    Pros

    Great Company Culture! Upper management is down-to-earth. Great benefits! They support the communities in which they're located.

    Cons

    It's easier to get a better position and better salary if you leave and come back than if you promote within.

    I have been working at BOK Financial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. I wish I had more, but I do not. The excellent benefits is the only perk! Good 401k. Nice banking options.

    Cons

    Management is in a transition process with unclear communication to staff. The on boarding process was sloppy. Employee roles are unclear and inconsistent for identical jobs. The mortgage division is new, unmanaged, and a diabolical.

    Advice to Management

    The market for internet lending is small. A bad reputation due to unprofessional management and mismanagement resulting in unhappy employees is a death sentence.

    Pros

    I worked with some really nice people, had good hours early in the day, and good benefits.

    Cons

    There was a lot of turnover in the operations center, a lot. The pay is bad and the raises are really minimal. Because the operations center is separate from the bank, the rules and policies were not at all followed. There were supervisors dating employees that worked directly under them, employees who had problems with others were left to handle these without any management input, and basic privacy standards were rarely followed.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep the good managers.

    Pros

    There are no pros for this company.

    Cons

    Let's just say that questionable (at best) relationships exist between certain managers and underlings, at least in the Internal Audit department.

    Advice to Management

    Watch the people in positions of power more closely.

    Pros

    They pay well and are flexible about time off. Work-life balance seems to matter here.

    Cons

    Long drive out to OP if you live in the city.

    Pros

    The work/life balance is ok for me but definitely not for others

    Cons

    High school popularity. If people like you, you can do anything you want, including publicly criticizing the function of another employee in a separate group. If people don't like you, you can't even defend yourself without people ostracizing you.

    Many of the employees tend to be herd thinkers. No attempts to find out any facts, just go off the rumor mill. That's what the company wants - hire salesman with no real discernible talent outside of closing the next transaction in a commodity business. I believe the phrase I once "herd" was "this company loves employees with a lot of personal debt - it motivates them to sell."

    Advice to Management

    You set the precedent by which your underbosses treat others. Be honest with a face-to-face instead of using the political grapevine to communicate your aggression. Is it that hard to take someone aside in private to ask a simple question like "are you not happy here?"
