    I worked at Devon Energy full-time

    Pros

    Nice location and infrastructure. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Contractors are second class employees. If lucky, you will be placed on a renewable contract depending on the "business" (jargon for department).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devon needs new ventures out of the USA. They are in a vulnerable position to be squeeze out by smaller and leaner E&P companies. Unfortunately natural gas prices doesn't help their portfolio nor having an energy policy in the U.S since early 70's.

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

    Pros

    Company Culture is great.
    Devon treats employees independently; not over managed.
    You can work at Devon for pretty much forever.

    Cons

    Promotions are largely based on time with the company and not merit.
    Upward mobility typically is a result of someone else voluntarily leaving the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some people need to be let go from time to time, not just during a budget crisis. Some people don't work out. Don't be so afraid of an HR lawsuit. A lot of dead weight in the office.

    Recommends
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
