    I have been working at ONEOK full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None , other than it's a job to show up to and get paid every 2 week's. If you're a college grad and looking to get experience in the industry come on over, we'll get you trained up so you can apply elsewhere for true "market" pay.

    Cons

    Some of the most severe micromanaging that I've ever been around. If you work here expect armchair quarterbacks to constantly tell you how they can do your job better than you ever could even though they've never done the position. Way over thought processes and documentation on the most simplest task's take away from the actual scope of the job that we do. I could go on but the review's left here are some of the same ideal's and thoughts that I have. I would say that any positive review's here are most likely HR or Manager's that were instructed to leave them.

    Advice to Management

    You are NOT the smartest person in the room.

    If YOU'RE not going to follow CRM and provide the most basic necessities that are written into procedure than why do you expect me to follow them? Basic AC/Temp adjustment shouldn't be that hard to provide when you have a staffed 24/7 control room. Management's advice to add some "fans" if you're hot isn't what's written in the CRM plan. A 2 am fatigue alarm shouldn't be answered by your controller's when mitigating fatigue as "I climbed a chair to pull a lightbulb in order to dim the light's". When the actual written plan call's for lighting adjustment. All things that "you" say your provide but clearly do not and have no plans to. We are not compliant and should DOT ever come in and audit your control group expect them to say the same.

    True work life balance they promote when hiring isn't here if you actually have to staff something that's not a salaried position. If you are an hourly employee and something goes down they do not care if it's your anniversary, Bday, Christmas,ETC... you are expected to go out and take care of it. The true work/life balance is enjoyed by salaried position's that phone it in on Friday's , day before holiday's, and when they feel like it(supervisor's , managers, directors).

    Speed up the hiring process. If you know someone is retiring , hire before they leave so that it doesn't leave your dept shorthanded. The wait and "hope"approach isn't working and never has.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. There are things that can be improved, but for the most part managers are working to improve every aspect

    Cons

    Pay seems to be just below the industry standard. Bonuses are a measured on some factors outside of employees control

    Pros

    The people within the organization are amazing. Some of the greatest people I have met.

    Cons

    There are too many layers of middle management. They hire great people, then tell them to do things another way and don't value the front line's opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people doing the actual job.

    Pros

    ONEOK is a great company to work for. They have performed very well during the recent downturn, and the management truly cares about the long term future of the companies and employees. Pay is fair

    Cons

    It is a larger company than I was used to, so it takes longer to change things that is ideal, but I am sure that is not unique to ONEOK.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Vacation and benefits are good. Flexible schedules are offered, but not to everyone.

    Cons

    Top heavy company. The company does not face issues head-on if those issues involve anyone above a manager. Very high risk of lawsuits by employees because they allow harassment and bullying by upper management

    Advice to Management

    Show more concern for those who work hard, and less concern for protecting those that bully their way up the ladder.

    I have been working at ONEOK full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    ONEOK is a conservative midstream energy business headquartered in Tulsa, OK. Working at ONEOK isn't necessarily the most exciting job, but it does provide great benefits with modest pay. ONEOK does not believe in layoffs so as long as you perform to the expectations set for you, you should have no problem holding down the job.

    Cons

    The price of crude oil drastically effects the price of ONEOK's stock, and the price of crude isn't predicted to rise anytime soon, so there's that. Pay is below average for similar positions in the market.
