    Pros

    Management believes in doing the right thing for it employees and the community. The pay and benefits are very competitive with others in the area and you don't have to worry about your job being impacted due to a downturn in the economy. Everyone will always need electricity and it also explains the long employee tenure here....it's not uncommon to see employees with 30-40 years of service here!

    Cons

    Sometimes waiting for the long tenured folks to retire so you can take a formal leadership role. However, there are many opportunities to move across the organization and take a different career path to get you where you want to be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep advancing and developing internal talent along with having leaders that care about their people.

    I worked at OGE Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent Salary, Semi-decent benefits, people are very courteous on the surface. The rank and file members are mostly good, hard working, well-intentioned people. Leaders appear to care about the members and running an effective organization. Strong sentiment towards worker safety.

    Cons

    Misogynistic culture. Like stepping back in time to 1975. Female professionals are treated like second class citizens, expected to perform "feminine" tasks like taking notes in meetings, getting food or cleaning up, while male counterparts are not. Double standard of behavior for men and women. The men (including middle and senior leaders) get away with anything, including behaviors that could be considered harassment and discrimination. Women who push back on this chauvinism are labeled as troublemakers or "difficult" and then retaliated against and relegated to the back seat. HR is dysfunctional and ineffective.

    Advice to Management

    Stop congratulating yourself for how great you are. Open your eyes and look at what's going on. Live up to the principles, values and beliefs you so loudly espouse. Don't believe only one side of a story.

    Pros

    401k is 5% contribution double matched, vacation is commensurate with all past experience, stable company

    Cons

    Not progressive, more bureaucratic than necessary, some of the organizational development is over the top

    Advice to Management

    Preserving jobs is not the most important outcome. The independent power providers are going to have the advantage as preserving the legacy fleet to meet NERC generation asset requirements trump progress throughout the fleet.

    I worked at OGE Energy (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Laid back, easy going environment
    -Allowed me to work from home whenever I was sick or needed to be in Norman for school related reasons
    -Boss was incredibly intelligent and amazingly helpful when he was available
    -Co-workers all friendly and easy going
    -Weekly staff meetings were fun and not a drag to go to
    -Was willing to discuss possible work after graduation
    -The free coffee was actually good

    Cons

    -Wasn't his fault, but my boss wasn't available often, leaving me with no direction at times
    --Note: He was going through a promotion and was running all over the place at the time of my internship. He really wanted to see the place catch up with the times.

    Pros

    If you're from Oklahoma, or graduated from OU or OSU, or "came up in the ranks" at OGE - this is your place.

    Cons

    If you're not one of the above, the experience you bring isn't valued and you aren't trusted (I was actually told this twice in two years).

    Pros

    Great co-workers and supervisors seem to care.

    Cons

    Very poor bonus and raise structure. Management is not transparent on how to get better raise ratings. There is still a buddy system for promotions.
