great offsite manager, employees on job site powerless.
Technical Writer (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – November 22, 2015
Cherokee is a caring group of people, nice benefits, with an excellent offsite manager who met with us weekly and daily by phone, but was was powerless to keep employees from being canned on job site by ruthless fed. Sad. I'll miss Cherokee!

start up kinda easy mornings. how to keeps the greens maintained and healthy. management was pretty fair about everything. the people there were great, nicest people i've known. summer work is the hardest at the golf course. I enjoyed being outside working on a beautiful place like that.
Too much bullying and lack of communication from managers
Media Relations Specialist (Former Employee) – West Siloam Springs, OK – March 25, 2017
The managers are not able to communicate to staff. There is no direction and management needs experience and training. They advertise that they offer tuition reimbursement; however, that is not true, your manager can make that choice.

I had to take std and they worked with me and covered it. The company listens to what is going on and is willing to talk to the necessary people to change things. Management is new but that made it easy to learn and willing to get better he wasn't stuck in his ways.

Co-workers are very nice hard workers Supervisor is very nice The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that my skills are being put to use. The hardest part of the internship was finding things to do and keeping the work flow moving.
Administrative Specialist (Current Employee) – Macon, GA – January 4, 2017
Very unorganized company to work for. Please take this into consideration when applying for a position here. Numerous of issues have been reported to Cherokee about certain policies in place and Cherokee has done nothing to change them. The structure of the teams they have in place is just as bad.
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Springfield, VA – November 3, 2016
Working with Cherokee Nation Businesses was pretty good. However, the job security is very bad and the turnover rate is very high. I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a more stable job, as it is contract work and very unpredictable.

Cherokee managers do not care about their employees. They treat minorities poorly and fire them easily. I do not recommend this company to minorities who are looking to grow professionally. Most managers are friends outside the company and are involved in crazy politics. They are quick to fire outstanding employees. No matter who you report to, you will only be building a case to get yourself fired.
No structure whatsoever, unqualified managers and hostile workplace.You will be required to compromise your work ethics for no reason.
People I work with are really good-hearted, but they can't make up for the BAD treatment of management.

Wish I had never left the very reputable company I worked for to go to this HORRIBLE place. Don't make my mistake, pass!! Most co-workers are looking for some place else to go. Worst place in this area to work.
Insurance seems to be Ok
Terrible managers, only looking for a way to get rid of everyone. Seem to be completely incompetent.
Sr. Project Manager (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – July 7, 2016
The people who work there are hard working and good hearted. The management are typically promoted beyond their qualifications. The environment is intolerable especially around election time. Do not even think of pointing out anything that is not correct in fear of retribution.
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Catoosa, OK – June 25, 2016
I started at an entry level position and was able to work my way up in the IT department. Training provided was sufficient. The people I worked with were an excellent group. Typically my direct supervisor or manager was really great to work for. I felt the pay was competitive with current industries. Benefits were great.
Benefits, work environment, cutting edge in technology for the size of the business in most respects.
Politics being a business owned by a tribe that holds elections.
