Sr Recruiter and Interim Recruiting Manager (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – September 7, 2016
Outstanding organization with a family like culture aka employees are referred to as members. It's a very old company with lots of history and it is one of the top employers in the state also one of the preferred employers in the state. They are very geared towards training and development so you get to constantly keep your skills up to date. They like to promote within so its a good place to start your career and grow. They may not be as competitive salary wise with other energy related companies but you can't beat their stability so it's a bit of a trade off.
Flex time and alternative work schedules
Sometimes takes a long time to make decisions, too much red tape.
Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – July 28, 2016
I've been with OGE for over 8 years and have been in 4 different roles that have helped me in my development to be in the supervisor role I am in today. Over the last couple of years there has been a greater focus on process improvement across the organization that has led to efficiencies and reduced cost. This initiative has also provided a lot of opportunities to individuals to demonstrate their ability to lead.
Overall, the employees here are genuine, down to earth and this is a very stable company that provides great pay/benefits and opportunities for growth.
Advancement, paid volunteer time, tuition reimbursement, experience credit for extra vacation, Alternate Work Schedules, 401K, sick leave and the people
It can take a while for some things to be implemented, dependent upon how many people in the organization it impacts
BPI (Former Employee) – Corporate – March 23, 2014
From the outside this company looks amazing. It has wonderful talent but management is clueless and middle management makes the decisions--which are rooted in the 1980s because that's when these people came on board--they are promoted based on time at OGE, not talent or ability. Again, most of the employees are wonderful. They treat you like a family but the management level is far out of touch. People who come on board leave quickly because of the corrupt culture and poor management issues.
Historic company who has lost touch with its roots.
Member (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – February 28, 2012
This 110 year old company is prone to internal restructuring with no sense of purpose. Middle management has no clear process to achieve the goals given them by upper management. This leaves employees with few resources and no sense of job stability.
focus on safety, strong community relations
no criteria for promotion/salary increases, disconnect with management
