In the past was wonderful; now it is clear unless you are upper management, you are not valued.
Support from management
Under new management that has NO idea what they are doing or what their support staff does. It is total chaos.
With exception of management, the best co workers I have ever had. Everyone worked hard and did whatever it took to get the job done.
Freedom to work independently
Again, utter chaos as new managment does not know what the position requires.
Communication to employees is terrible and often deceptive
Various specific locations had some issues here.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Within the brokerage and bank there seems to be a trend of forcing out the older more experienced employees in favor of the younger and less expensive
It is who you know, not what you know.
Overall compensation for your work
Benefits are good, but on the expensive side. Compensation for those not in mangement is below average.
Office / Work Environment
At the tower conditions were okay; drive was not much fun and parking is paid but several blocks away
Work comes first.
Most used to speak very highly; that has changed in the last 2 - 3 years, Very unfortunate. I personally used to say it was the best place to work in Tulsa; that is most definatley no longer true.
Very unstable; again anyone below upper management has zero job security.
Brokerage operations is complex work; we had a great, but highly undervaled team of professionals that could handle any and everything that was thrown at them.
Inclusive / Diverse
Suggestions for improvement
- Much is made of the annual "anonymous" employee survey. It would be a really good idea to actually take to heart the answers you receive from the employees brave enough to answer honestly. You didn't get where you are today by disresecting your support staff and punishing them for being successful. You have a fantastic group of professionals; treat them as such instead of heaping more work on them while at the same time cutting their pay and taking away their incentive.
What I dislike about the company
They have no loyalty to their employees
