Pros

It still has a great small company feel to it even though it is a 30 billion dollar company. Management takes care of it's people like they were family. They still give out a Christmas bonus to every single employee in the company. We are all part of the family

Cons

Can't ever get more than 4 weeks of vacation if you come in from another company. No credit for past years of experience causes you to have to work 20 years with Devon to get 5 weeks. Sadly I'll be 72 when that happens.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work. Great work on keeping us all informed on whats going on and why.

    Pros

    Senior leadership is the best in the business. Opportunities for growth are plenty. Benefits are good. There is a sense of belonging among the employees. Morale is strong from top to bottom. Information is communicated upward and downward fairly well. The company believes in a strong work-life balance. It is founded on integrity and strictly adheres to its mission and values. It is strategically positioned within the marketplace, with a strong presence in most domestic basins. Its overseas exposure is minimal and purposely placed in countries that are less risky politically. There are no sacred cows within this company - everyone is a valued employee and is treated fairly and with respect.

    Cons

    It is a little behind the times in certain aspects. Departments are a bit too functional and not as team oriented as possible. Divisions operate semi-autonomously, and rarely are opportunities for advancement advertised beyond the immediate office or division. This company is an excellent place to work for individuals with strong self motivation; however, those that require aset career path and a strong support mechanism might find it a frustrating experience. Likewise, this is not a company that one with an aversion to change and adaptation will appreciate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing whatever you are doing. Streamline and push responsibility down the organization as much as possible. Educate the leaders of tomorrow while you have the time to do so.

    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.
