    I worked at Bank of Oklahoma full-time

    Pros

    Clients always come first, reasonable sales goals, upper management typically open to discuss any issues, fantastic 401k with match for tenured employees, company would rather promote from within rather than hire outside candidates, if you are unhappy in your position, they will work with you on getting where you would rather be

    Cons

    Changed commission structure heavily affected ability to exceed goals, many employees not properly trained, thus setting improper expectations

  2. Has both Pros and Cons

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Bank of Oklahoma full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Salary, Benefits, Bonuses, Professional Environment, Leadership, Industry Leading Methods, Owned by Primary Shareholder so able to manage company for long term success vs short term fluctuations

    Cons

    Poor work life balance in IT division. Corporate company culture does not value employees as much as what the company can get out of them, continual recurring trend over past 20 years of expending employees at all levels after devoting years and added value to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Company culture starts at the top

      Pros

      Pay is pretty good for the area depending on your department.

      Cons

      10 years in and it seems like BOK has done a big turn around. They do not seem as invested in long term employees. They can and will always replace you with someone they can pay less.

      Pros

      The Salaries are nice, because they can’t fill the positions.

      Cons

      There is very little room for growth and there is a lot of sales pressure to put people in products they don’t need.

        I worked at Bank of Oklahoma full-time for more than 20 years

        Pros

        My only pro was my coworkers

        Cons

        I worked for BOK for 18 years was loyal to a fault. I knew more than 90% of the current employees. I knew what was right and what was wrong and did not agree with something I thought was dishonest. Trained countless individuals who I knew would start out with a better pay grade than me but I did it because I loved to teach. I exceeded all sales goals exceeded customer service expectations exceeded compliance goals; help...
