    Former Employee - Business Analyst in Tulsa, OK
    Former Employee - Business Analyst in Tulsa, OK

    I worked at BOK Financial full-time (More than a year)

    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

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

    Pros

    -Benefits are good
    -401k matching that escalates the longer you work there
    -Challenging work
    -good vacation time
    -They will work with you to progress in your current position and help you find other positions in the bank. They try to keep good talent!
    -Management has a flat structure

    Cons

    -Pay is average, but I think they reward good work.
    -Corporate hours can be a little long but that is probably typical

    Good benefits, opportunity for growth since they do hire and promote internally when possible. Most people are generally friendly and nice

    Cons

    Under paid and over worked.
    Politics get in the way of allowing employees to do their job. High turnover across the bank.

    Pros

    Good pay, good incentives, decent health bennefits.

    Cons

    The ammount of work is not worth the pay. Workspaces are filthy. There were mice in my branch! Interest rates are non-competitive and goals are unrealistic. Horrible balance between personal life and work. I would never go back. Joined a credit union and LOVE IT. Do yourself a favor and stay away!

    Pros

    Benefits are good, but growing increasingly expensive

    Cons

    Extremely political; management cares nothing about their employees whatsoever. Years of service, years of experience mean nothing at all - no loyalty whatsoever. Much more concerned about whether something looks good on paper than if it will work in the "real world".

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES, the ones that actually DO the job you are screwing with. They know more about what is going on than any of the so called expert consultants that you keep hiring at 6 figures will ever be able to tell you.

    Really REALLY good people. Awesome benefits, health insuracne, etc.

    When you work where I do, you never really know when you're going to get off
