    Pros

    Best in class benefits. Regular raises.

    Cons

    Culture is fake. Ultra corporate and cold. Ultra conservative, don’t rock the boat approach to everything, even on out of date ideas. Work life balance is difficult. Wildly unqualified managers in many departments.

    Inflexibility around WFH/Hybrid Schedules

    Jan 25, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Strong brand recognition in the Oklahoma and Texas markets.

    Cons

    Management’s view of WFH and flexible work schedules is very one-sided. We are told by management that an overwhelming majority of employees don’t prefer a hybrid schedule. However, employees were never surveyed (or asked for that matter) what they prefer so this feels very insincere. If that is the case then the employees who want to be in the office 5 days a week can do so, and the employees who prefer to have some flexibility can have that option as well. Management claims there is no “one size fits all” approach, which I can agree with, but giving employees 1 to 2 days a week from home hardly seems like a major disruption to the core value of collaboration. If anything, employees may have an increase in job satisfaction, which might even reduce the rapid turnover being experienced. Several current and former employees have also commented on the same issue, so this does appear to be a topic of concern.

    Not a good company to start your career

    Nov 2, 2021 - Analyst in Tulsa, OK
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -BOKF employees are generally very nice and willing to grab a coffee or lunch to talk about their particular LOB. -The company is very stable and rarely fires people.

    Cons

    -The bank is conservative in many ways, but most notably in its WFH policy (or lack thereof). -Pay is well below industry standard, and there are no perks/benefits to make up for this pay differential -There are not many learning or development opportunities for younger employees -Growth opportunities are very limited. You essentially have to wait until someone retires to be promoted, as new positions (especially if you work in a group that is considered a cost center) are rarely created. -BOK has very little brand recognition outside of Oklahoma
