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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow professionals to do their job, and avoid micro-management by managers.
