Pros

Devon is the best place I have ever worked. It is fun, lively atmostphere that is both laid back and professional. Integrity is how senior management is characterized and they walk the talk. They strive to be a family atmosphere even though they are a large company. Opinions are valued and appreciated.

Cons

Very busy job makes it difficult to take time off. Very demanding level of work and responsibility causes multiple overtime hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When employees come to you stating they need to add staff to alleviate working 60-70 hours a week, please consider the position quickly and considerately to the staff it impacts. It is frustrating to employees when staff is added for upper management positions rather than promoting from within. It is also frustrating when you can't get staff added in a timely fashion or at all to minimize workload.

    I worked at Devon Energy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent mentoring directly out of University, great place to be trained and start a career. Also a great place to end a career. Good work - life balance.

    Cons

    Somewhat unstable now, company is more trouble than is commonly known. Very little opportunity for career advancement beyond 7 years experience. Massive demographics issues, 55 yrs+ median age in G&G. Pay + LTI is in bottom quartile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a desperate need of new blood from technical level to management (management especially). Many of the Baby Boomer Managers simply do not understand how to work with the Millennial Generation and it is a huge reason why the 10-15 experience range is/ and has not been retained.
