    I worked at ONEOK full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    good atmosphere most of the IT techs and SME's are good to work with and if your in a position to do so you can learn a lot . I would not keep this position long term though maybe while your finishing college no more then 2 years max this is the type of environment you will outgrow very fast .

    Cons

    If your looking at doing busy work for a living do not work in the Service Desk . There are limits as to how far you can take issues . Rather or not your idea's are good or liked will not matter . As you will be a contractor and treated as such . It's common for energy company's to contract out most of their work but they want you to bend over backwards for the same pay no matter what shift or hours you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you want to get ride of someone just say so do not make up reasons / excuses Do not hide . Communication is an important aspect of management and any individual with experience and or education knows that . Your environment is very predictable . As such is the reason for your personnel turnaround .

    Pros

    Awesome orientation program. Strong steady company. Good environment.

    Cons

    Below market pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider setting up a longer orientation program where you allow your new hires to advance. I know several who wanted to advance but weren't given the chance so they left and advanced elsewhere, including myself. I enjoyed my time there but you've got to reward innovation and drive more than you do.

    I have been working at ONEOK full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    laid back atmosphere, good benefits, strong company to be with. They match 6% 401K and they are very involved in the community in Oklahoma.

    Cons

    The market based pay system seems to be very low in the market that you are in. Management won't argue with this they know it's true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within. Don't let great employee's leave over pay.

    I have been working at ONEOK

    Pros

    Average comp
    Good bonus
    Plenty of vacay
    Great asset base
    Laid back work place (at least at ONG)

    Cons

    Professional and career development are talked about but not specifically addressed nor are they acted upon.
    Lots of dead weight in the work force and it seems ONG won't fire someone unless they break the law. This drags down the rest of the company.
    Over staffed and not enough work to keep everyone busy. Typical of a quasi governmental entity like a utility.
    Low wages compared to other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate possible career development plans or processes to employees so they can have an attainable career goal to work towards.
    Bump salary so employees won't leave.
