    Great company & Great people

    Accountant (Former Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsA great working environment thanks to the perks. Good insurance benefits, 401k, & wellness center. Great people to work with and family oriented.

    ConsBeing the best with less staff than other similar companies leads to longer hours and more stress. Silos are a problem between divisions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow good employees to find and reposition themselves into right role within the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Seems like a great company, not so for contractors.

    Accountant (Current Employee)
    Stillwater, OK

    ProsJudging from the updates visible on the company Strata page, I can tell that this is a business that values their employees.

    ConsAs a contract employee, the culture of the company seemed greatly different from full Devon employees. Management had the attitude that all contractors are replaceable.

    Company that cares about its employees

    Petroleum Engineer (Former Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsI interned with Devon for a summer and enjoyed it very much. The company is simply just full of good, hard working people. The company takes very good care of its employees and prides itself on that. They keep an open mind to any ideas and let them flow up the ladder rather than having the big executives bark orders down the ladder. It is a very collaborative enviornment.

    ConsLocation is very closed-minded. Since they closed their Houston office and centralized to Oklahoma City, I think that they have annoyed some people and have discouraged some from working there.

    Learned a lot and made many new friends

    Analyst (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsBelieved in training their employees, management always seemed to be fair.

    ConsClosed Houston office. Oklahoma City too far away. Some departments spent too much time reorganizing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of the employees you have. Make sure there is a work / life balance.

    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsGreat environment to work in!

    ConsIf you are on contract to hire they treat you extremely different

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in contractors that have potential.

    Good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNice location and infrastructure. Good benefits.

    ConsContractors are second class employees. If lucky, you will be placed on a renewable contract depending on the "business" (jargon for department).

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevon needs new ventures out of the USA. They are in a vulnerable position to be squeeze out by smaller and leaner E&P companies. Unfortunately natural gas prices doesn't help their portfolio nor having an energy policy in the U.S since early 70's.

    No one ever gets fired

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany Culture is great.
    Devon treats employees independently; not over managed.
    You can work at Devon for pretty much forever.

    ConsPromotions are largely based on time with the company and not merit.
    Upward mobility typically is a result of someone else voluntarily leaving the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome people need to be let go from time to time, not just during a budget crisis. Some people don't work out. Don't be so afraid of an HR lawsuit. A lot of dead weight in the office.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsTreats employees well, pay is great. Plenty of opportunities to learn and improve skills.

    ConsDon't have many programming opportunities. Interns do not get very impressive projects.
