I worked at Devon Energy full-time

Pros

- Able to purchase up to 2 weeks of holidays with flex dollars
- 6% pension, 2% stocks "gift", and 4% contribution match to savings plan is one of the best in the business

Cons

- Totally disorganized implementation of SAP accounting system, still in shambles
- HR department not helpful with resolving issues
- Some really great younger talent that deserves to be promoted, but have to wait until someone quite or retires to get recognized
- Drilling and Completions departments have very low morale
- Once a good project gets identified Devon has a way of stepping in and over-complicating and over-managing it, thereby taking away the ownership from the workers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a really good look at the people that you have managing the business - there are some great managers and some terrible ones. Listen to what employees have to say.

    I have been working at Devon Energy full-time

    Pros

    -Bonus
    -Ability to purchase vacation time
    -Valuable work experience
    -Good Values! Devon wants good people!

    Cons

    -9 hour work day (imposed 1 hour lunch break)
    -Poor management in some main departments, no sense of open communication or leadership (you will seek them out, not the other way around)
    -Sniper method of firing people
    -Opportunity to advance if someone passes away, retires or is fired.
    -10% opportunity to use your real skills and knowledge
    -lots of gossip (mainly due to the fact of poor leadership by management and leaders)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On behalf of many employees, please change something. Get more management if there is too much work. Stop spending money on promoting healthy living, and focus on creating a healthy environment to work in. Maybe then the people that are hired wont get sick, and tired or go nuts and retire early. Boost morale! make your people feel like they are important and welcome, not like they may get fired if they don't flash a fake smile. Let people be themselves. They will like it I promise!
