    I have been working at OGE Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive benefits that includes good pay structure.

    Cons

    Upper leadership among different business units don't get along and causes stress, demotivates the rest of the workforce. It used to be such a good company and i have been with this company for more than 25 years and it's in such a bad shape right now. Very sad. No accountability at the upper level.

    Advice to Management

    Upper leadership need to talk to folks and lower management to learn more about what is really going on instead of merely relying on VPs & Directors...who will tell you what you want to hear and not paint the true picture. Folks are stressful and demotivated.

    I have been working at OGE Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Started with 4 weeks of vacation (but use most of it for "stress days")

    Cons

    Upper management does not talk to one another and plan projects on top of each other.
    The company has "favorites" - if you happen to not be one of those people or in one of those departments- No advancement.
    Change resistant (top down).
    Internal strife- so many people are worried about their job stability that they will do anything and everything to sabotage inter-departmental projects.
    Safety culture is excessive. I don't need to be lectured about the dangers of paper cuts or standing on chairs.
    Outsourcing- It seems that almost every department has outsourced their own job duties .

    Advice to Management

    Needs new leadership.
    Need to focus on your employees.

    I worked at OGE Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They were hiring when I need a pay check.

    Cons

    The Executive long term compensation which includes Directors and above is structured such that they get bonus based on growth in earnings year over year. Since The company has no control over pricing that means they have to squeeze their employees and cost. There is virtually no investment in productivity software, no long term planning and no organizational growth. Those directors? They are everywhere. Many have no direct reports and do senior individual contributor work yet carry executive titles.

    Advice to Management

    Update your organization starting at the top and quit blaming milinials for leaving after a few years when you make it a sub prime workspace.

    I have been working at OGE Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people who I work with are amazing.. very smart individuals that can make anything happen when needed. Pretty welcoming environment as well, no real complaints there.

    Cons

    Project timelines are absolutely ridiculous. I can't speak from experience since I'm relatively new to software development, but I'm pretty sure that major software projects take more time than 2 months for specification, development and testing altogether. I'm watching developers lose sleep over maintaining garbage legacy applications that were probably hurried out the door as well...

    If you're not sprinting, however, it feels like there's nothing to do. During very few moments would I say that the team has had an "average" workload. OGE also has an outsourcing problem, which is currently causing more problems than it is solving. In fact, an employee who had spent 30+ years with the company was let go recently.

    Advice to Management

    Give people longer timelines to deal with. Churning out projects quickly isn't impressive at all, it means that you now have a buggy application that some poor soul in the future will have to maintain and/or fix.

    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.

    Pros

    People listen and are engaged in making safety better.

    Cons

    Management in safety only promotes based on the buddy system, looses tempers publicly, and can't be trusted to their word.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house in safety department and get rid of hr.
