    Advice to Management

    Upper Management needs to be rebuilt. But it runs by the " Good Ol'Boy System" if your not family or a friend you rarely find the help or guidance you need.

    I have been working at Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma full-time

    Pros

    The Tribe's mission is great.

    Cons

    Leadership spends most of their efforts on fancy technology. Meanwhile, people are overworked and overall unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. There are so many levels of management, so many directors, and communication simply does not work. Shift the focus from IT to HR and we will be really successful.

    I worked at Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There really aren't too many anymore. There's a lot of bureaucrats and backstabbers here.

    Cons

    The atmosphere has become purely political and it takes years to get anything done now that the short staffed legal department has to review even the smallest of agreements.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a common sense department... this place needs it.

    I worked at Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits! Pay well for a small town in Oklahoma.

    Cons

    Not treated fairly. The Manager was threatened by me so she lied to the supervisor, and I was asked to answer the allegations. When I answered them they were not even read I was just let go.

    Advice to Management

    Look at who you are hiring as your consultants! Both of my superiors were fired a few months after I was let go for deceptive practices.
