There is a high turnover rate so it is almost impossible to establish a good working relationship with other cohorts.
Research Associate (Current Employee), Tulsa, OK – June 18, 2014
Pros: competative pay.
Cons: they do not promote from within. they have a very youthful workforec, disorganized and ask for input but don't like it when you speak up.
A typical day is to show-up do your job and go home. Management is young and is always in FLUX. The hardest part is keeping up with the everyday changes such as; who is your supervisor today? With a high turnover rate it is almost impossible to create a good work relationship. The most enjoyable part is working with community members.
Custodian I (Former Employee), Norman, OK – April 27, 2014
Pros: got to work on ou campus
Cons: game days
I worked Night crew the whole time I was there. Management never really bothered me, and I was guaranteed 40 hrs. a week. Co workers where awesome even though some of them are kinda aged. All in all the place is not that bad to work for.
Care manager (Former Employee), Tulsa, OK – April 25, 2014
Pros: good work/life balance
Cons: care mgmt team not a priority, sw mgmt juvenile, all about the brown-nosing, lack incentive to create outstanding department
Ok place to work. Lack resources and incentive to make Care Management Dept. a leading force in care management in Oklahoma despite designation at OU. Some members of management unprofessional and use juvenile behaviors. Learned that it's more about who you know vs. what you know. If you aim to be noticed for everything but how valuable you are to the – more... Care Management team then this job's for you! – less
Parking Attendant (Former Employee), Norman, OK – April 24, 2014
Pros: pay, co-workers, environment
Working at Parking Services was a pleasure. My co-workers were like family, and completely professional. I enjoyed walking around the university and meeting diverse people. I learned how to utilize a hand held computer that wrote tickets. The hardest part was consumers being agitated about receiving tickets.

Research Assistant (Current Employee), Norman, OK – March 31, 2014
While regular classes are not always challenging, the Honors College at the University of Oklahoma provides an academically invigorating environment that allows individuals to develop analytical and research skills that can be used in future careers.
Research Assistant (Current Employee), OK – March 7, 2014
Pros: the other team members
As a research assistant at the University, I had a typical day of going to classes and in between I would go to work. I was in charge of all outreach events and education. I believe I have developed great personal skills through this. I was very fortunate to receive this position as an intern and continue after the requirement was fulfilled for class. – more... The hardest part of the job was managing school and work. This was very difficult since I started the job my Jr. year where the classes became more and more of a work load/out of class experience. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people that I have been fortunate enough to work with, and the friends that I have through the company. – less
Graduate Assistant (Former Employee), Norman, OK – February 19, 2014
Great day every day with students and teaching. Hardest part was traveling long distance to get to work. Love the campus and the walking, especially in spring. Always busy with students. Great faculty.
A secure stable job, but very little room for advancement.
Buyer (Current Employee), Norman, OK – February 19, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: got bored. not enough excitement. do not get paid enough to stress.
Review contracts, and place orders for departments. The co-workers here are very friendly and outgoing, probably going to miss them the most. I do not want to bash management. The work load that they are assigned is causing the training to be lacked. Not enough people to do some of the ordering. The hardest part of the job is being held responsible – more... for legal contracts. I am not in legal or do I get paid enough to stress over the legal terms which is why I would like to leave this position. The company is very good to work for if you are doing something you enjoy. – less
Working at the University of Oklahoma has been a beneficial experience because my coworkers and supervisors truly fostered a relationship with me that allowed me to grow as a person but also in my skills. I was able to develop my passion for learning and teaching while also gaining practical knowledge.
Mechanical Engineer Intern (Former Employee), Norman, OK – January 6, 2014
