I worked at Devon Energy

Pros

Fewer hours involved than comparable companies
Three weeks vacation
Employees are friendly, management shows respect

Cons

Executive positions are in Oklahoma- can only advance to a certain point in Houston
Currently downsizing and laying people off

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't grow the company too fast where it can't handle downturns in the economy. Keep the "family" feel where employees are not a number, but a person.

    I have been working at Devon Energy

    Pros

    It has the strengths of a major oil company in terms of a diversified portfolio, diverse job opportunities, the capital to tackle large-scale projects, and the discipline and foresight to be ahead of the industry curve in terms of new plays and trends and applying new technology to unlock them. On the other hand, Devon can move as quickly as independents much smaller in size and management will support new ideas without being locked in 'analysis-paralysis.' The people are first-class all the way -great to work with. Management is made up of people that are professional but also value the softer-side of HR/people skills.

    Cons

    With any company of this size, there is some bureaucracy, a few more meetings than necessary, but the overall job experience and work environment is worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! Keep encouraging your employees to try new things and take some risks. That is why Devon continues to be at the fore-front of so many different plays and trends.
