    I have been working at Devon Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are many improvements to made in all aspects of the business. I find this enticing as an employer, as there are many projects underway and plenty of work to do. The people are very nice and very professional. The building is great and the offices are more than satisfactory. Accommodations such as the parking garage, dry cleaning, car wash, food court, and gym just add to the positive work environment. I don't know of many employers in Oklahoma that offer such accommodations.

    Cons

    Promoting from within often times motivates individual contributors to work harder and learn new things. However, I have seen more leadership positions filled from outside than from within. This is a shame, as there are many competent employees that have aspirations for leadership. You have to know the right people to further your career towards management if that is your career aspiration. Change is good, we've all heard many things about change. However, Devon seems to change (change organizational structure, change goals, etc.) for the sake of change. The work environment is like the Oklahoma weather - if you don't like it just wait a few months and it'll change. This is less than motivating for most employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate goals clearly and holistically from top down. Over communicate goals for that matter and define success so that is applicable, visible, and understandable for all levels of employment (Top to bottom). I believe Devon would benefit from a culture aimed at promoting from within. As mentioned above, most leadership positions are hired outside of Devon.

    Feelings and personal perceptions seem to be more important the results. This is a shame. It is almost more beneficial to you if people like you and you "drink the tea" rather than delivering results and possibly stepping on a few toes to accomplish business goals.
