    I worked at Devon Energy full-time

    Pros

    Great Pay, great benefits including reimbursement for gym memberships.

    Cons

    Minimum 50% travel, management didn't know their people or took any time to get to know them.

    Advice to Management

    Let divisional management make decisions about who to keep or lay off. Now that the oilfield has recovered, employees who were laid off are not replaced by high priced consultants who don't know/follow policies. Long term view was not taken during layoff.

    Pros

    Great benefits! Competitive pay, parking garage, 401k matching, awesome vacation/holiday, alternative work schedule, gym on campus, car wash in parking garage, colleagues are great to work with.

    Cons

    Devons culture has TANKED since the layoff in 2015. Management and supervisor level employees simply seem to not know how to make QUALITY decisions, unless quality means changing directions every three months. This leaves many guessing as to what the performance goals really are for the year. Many colleagues have experienced the same issue. Colleagues have expressed that they have been given a metric to meet... at the beginning of the year. By the end of the year, Devon management has changed their direction, and that metric becomes obsolete and irrelevant to this new metric that takes priority because it is a fire and must be done NOW, NOW, NOW! Thus causing employees under the supervisor level trying to shift directions, therefore, not getting either metric completed fully during the year. At which point they usually get a sub par performance review because they weren't able to get their original metric completed. Had this been one person I wouldn't be leaving this as a con, but it happens to a lot of people here. This scenario has happened to at least 6 different colleagues of mine over the past two years. Management/supervisor levels also do NOT like you to offer a different solution to the problem. It is their way or the highway, there are no alternatives. They will say your opinion is welcomed and seem nice while you are providing it, but I have others reputation being thrashed behind closed doors for offering their opinion, even if it is a good solution to the problem. Seriously, if you work here in PRA, keep your head down for that...

    Advice to Management

    Find a path and stick to it. Listen to Lead, Sr. Staff, and Staff level accountants. Provide honorable and reasonable metrics by which employees can feel successful and confident in completing them

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible work week, good compensation. Great people to work with!

    Cons

    A shift in upper management has changed the culture at Devon and mass lay-offs due to downturn in O&G market don't help. Significant changes in data management structure and data analytic platforms make it very difficult for techs to perform their job because of inflexibility in the ability to manipulate data. Management has favorites and they want the good ole boy yes men. If you are out spoken, innovative beyond... their vision, you will not do well here.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to the people doing the job before you implement processes and software that affects their roles. Listen to your people, don't stifle the voices that oppose your "mission" there may be good reason for their concerns. If you are going to have a "mission" and expect employees to respect it then it needs to be observed by ALL employees no exceptions.
