Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – Keller, TX relocating to Las Colinas – September 1, 2017
Because of the SEC and OCC being considered one of 8 companies that are "too big to fail" they're extremely key on security and doing this perfect. Some people think it's over board and too much but I loved that amount of attention to detail.
Monthly free lunches and competitions for who made the best hot sauce
Vice President (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 15, 2016
OCC is a solid company going through significant structural and operational change. Very experienced and competent staff, new leadership and solid foundation. Culture change is significant as well, lots of opportunity to make a difference.
Senior Risk Analyst (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 5, 2015
The management is currently very new and they don't have their vision in place yet. What the company does is extremely stable and great; however, it's not a good idea to come in as an experienced hire with a lot of expectations currently.
Productive, fast paced work environment with modern facilities
Member Representative/ Sr Help Desk Specialist (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 19, 2015
Production processing in the member services department makes up a typical daily cycle which is aided by multiple processes and multiple departments throughout the day. The diversity of the job makes each day active and unpredictable, yet interesting. They are a full service organization to its membership.
Applications Services Analyst Intern (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 15, 2014
The job consists of writing sql queries, lots of documentation, screen mock ups, and integration testing. At the OCC I worked in teams, once as a lead of other interns, and got a real taste of what is like to be in the business world. Both coworkers and management are kind and helpful for the most part. The hardest part of the job is coming up with the creative solutions needed for some of the different problems that arise in the OCC's type of business. The most enjoyable part of my job at the OCC were the people here and the relatively relaxed working environment for being a financial company.
Pay for interns, lots of charity/work functions, working in the loop, flexible schedule

Great place to start your career especially as an intern. Not much pressure working on projects but do expect deadlines to be met. Very flexible when it comes time management and work hours. Co workers are very down to earth and easy to talk with. Overall Good Experience
Sr. IS Auditor, Information Services Audit (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 1, 2012
I learned a lot about the options industry at this job. My co-workers were great. This was the best job I ever had when I started, however, over the last two years, departmental management direction became unclear. This made it difficult to complete projects.
