Management is terrible and working 12 plus hours daily is never enough to catch up on ten years worth of clean up. I have worked there for a little over a year and will be leaving next month.

Oklahoma affiliate lacks in professionalism and they do not adhere to the over all mission of VOA. They only care about how they look at the expense of others. POOR leadership coming from the Tulsa, OK office. Other affiliates I'm sure are different, but OKlahoma? Stay away. Plus compare the Oklahoma affiliate to the other state affiliate, benefits are almost non-existent.
