Great Benefits and Long-term Incentives

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Devon Energy

ProsBenefits, Compensation, Long-term Incentives, co-workers, treatment of employees, car wash, dry cleaners, coffee shop

ConsThere is room for growth in leadership functions and decision making. However, I have full confidence in leadership's recognition of what needs to be better and the direction they are taking to get us there.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease effective communication of vision and ensure the message and expectations are clearly and consistently passed down from top to bottom

The people.

Accounting Intern (Current Employee)
Oklahoma City, OK

I have been working at Devon Energy as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe people, pay, and perks. Great environment. The physical environment is really nice, and the interpersonal environment is amazing. Strong cross department movement opportunities.

ConsThe executives have moved towards a "shareholder focus." They stress that as a motivation. For people that don't have stock in the company, that really isn't much of a motivation.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou keep stressing "shareholder value." If you want to motivate employees to increase that value, stock options are a must on all levels.

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

Great place to work

Geoscience Technologist (Current Employee)
Oklahoma City, OK

I have been working at Devon Energy full-time for more than 3 years

Proslots of opportunity for grow, tons of development and education classes

ConsLateral promotions, lots of room for growth and change but they reward people coming in the organization better than those within, meaning you can get promoted to a new position with a slight bump in pay while a person coming from outside with less experience will get a more competitive salary.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good Company

Records Technician (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Devon Energy full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThis is good company to work for. I worked there five and a half years. Like the other oil and gas companies, they provide good benefits for their employees. In addition, you'll find good people there to work with and work for.

ConsThere is not much bad to say. It is a large corporation and as a large corporation, they may have to make business decisions that a given person may not like. For example, there are times in the oil business when you have to exit business in one part of the country and grow business in another part of the country. This always effects jobs, but the company trys to take care of the employees that can not relocate.

Advice to Senior ManagementThanks for hiring good people and remembering to take care of them as people. Thanks for five good years. I'd do it again if I could.

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