    I have been working at ONEOK full-time

    Pros

    Reliable company with conservative financial practices

    Cons

    There is little room for growth. Although ONEOK likes to tout itself as diverse, upper management is a "boys club" made up exclusively of old, white men. Management practices are from the 1980s. Ability or competence is not really a concern of ONEOK; they value obedience far more.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some new tricks. Employees today care much more about intrinsically rewarding work and work-life balance. Don't hoard responsibilities. Instead, develop your employees into future leaders.

    Pros

    The benefits are very good.

    Cons

    HR needs to send anonymous management review forms online yearly to employees like other major energy companies. This allows HR to see moral, harassment, and positive or negative feedback on their supervisors. Teams with high turnover rates indicate one thing and that is "A good boss at bad job is better than a bad boss at good job." Yes men are given raises over others even if they are late, leave early, and unskilled. Do not come to ONEOK in Texas.

    Advice to Management

    Employees with longevity who make consistent mistakes and provide bad leadership are allowed to continue on until retirement. This is very far behind the times. If the employee is not more valuable than the first year then why keep them around.

    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

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

    I have been working at ONEOK full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Company cc, company vehicle, very nice perks. Pay could be better but hard to complain about when the rest of the benefits are so amazing.

    Cons

    Pay is based on how good you say you are, not on how good you actually are. Interviews need to be more technical and stringent. There needs to be training provided across the board and not just to operators.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the guys/gals beneath you more. Don't tie our hands behind our backs and still expect us to do our jobs in a proficient manner.

    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.
