    I have been working at Devon Energy as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Devon Energy as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    I worked at Devon Energy as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Location 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.

    Pros

    Very good salary and benefits.

    Cons

    The company is lost and doesn't have a clear direction.Reorgs too often without a purpose in mind. Too much pomp and pageantry in the rotunda.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold Sr. Managers and up accountable. Come down off of the 47th floor everyone in a while.
