    I have been working at BOK Financial full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Generous 401k match, small enough that you can get to know the executives, they proactively ask how we think the company could be better, good community involvement.

    Cons

    Hard to get raises without a promotion. Negotiate at the start or you're basically stuck.

    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

    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

    BOKF has good employee benefits and theres really not much bad to say about what they have to offer. They do have a health incentive that you have to meet the requirements for the receive help with insurance.

    Cons

    There aren't a ton of cons. BOKF's benefits package really is pretty standard and a lot is offered for employees that are full time.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    -Benefits are good
    -401k matching that escalates the longer you work there

    -Pay is average, but I think they reward good work.
