    Pros

    We have many good people in the Bank of Oklahoma/Texas. Like many companies all major decisions are made in the home office. If want you want advancement or be notice you better be located in Tulsa.

    Cons

    Very disappoint how existing employees have little room for salary advancement. The bank can give titles out left and right, but compensation is very poor after arriving. The bank is a training ground for the Oklahoma market.

    Advice to Management

    It is shocking how little delegation is given to proven employees. It will be hard to grow the bank outside of Oklahoma if executive management does not trying to push out responsibility and decision making. The road shows are a waste of time when employees questions are not answered directly and the same old story is told.

    Pros

    Relaxed, friendly people. Great training and numerous resources to help you preform the job. Policies are clearly laid out and there is little confusion on procedures

    Cons

    Nearly every Branch Manager and Assistant Branch Manager is hired from outside the company. Goals are raised every year while lowering the points rewarded for each sale

    Advice to Management

    Give your dedicated workers more opportunity and you wouldn't have so much turn over. Sales aren't everything.
