Too much bullying and lack of communication from managers
Media Relations Specialist (Former Employee) –  West Siloam Springs, OKMarch 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.

Great company
System Administrator/ Database Manager (Former Employee) –  El Paso, TXFebruary 22, 2017
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.
Pros
gave out monthly employees certificates
Cons
contract jobs and funds run out

Graphic Designer Intern (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKJanuary 11, 2017
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.

Cons
contract is not managed well

Good advancements/ Bad job security
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Springfield, VANovember 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.
Pros
All federal holidays off and occasional telework
Cons
bad job security/ high turnover rate

Management are unprofessional and unqualified
former employee (Former Employee) –  Washington City, DCAugust 26, 2016
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.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Unqualified and unprofessional management

People I work with are really good-hearted, but they can't make up for the BAD treatment of management.
Employee (Current Employee) –  Catoosa, OKJuly 28, 2016
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.
Pros
Insurance seems to be Ok
Cons
Terrible managers, only looking for a way to get rid of everyone. Seem to be completely incompetent.

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.
Pros
Great co-workers, nice breakroom with free snacks
Cons
incorrigable management

Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Catoosa, OKJune 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.
Pros
Benefits, work environment, cutting edge in technology for the size of the business in most respects.
Cons
Politics being a business owned by a tribe that holds elections.
