    Pros

    Amazing culture and work life balance.

    Cons

    8 layoffs in 5 years. Constantly shuffling teams as a result of layoffs. Most senior Staff (10+ years) have been cut, leaving a team that frequently does not know how to do their jobs well, let alone when they are doing the work of two people. Constantly shifting corporate goals make it impossible to actually achieve any of them.

    Great place to work but not dedicated to employees

    Pros

    Great place to work- encourage work life balance and compensation is typically excellent

    Cons

    Their hiring process revolves around whether or not you are willing to stay in Oklahoma City long term. The entire employment process was based off of dedication to Devon and staying with the company. However, when it came time to perform layoffs it didn't matter how dedicated you were to the company; ultimately the company had a layoff process that ignored performance.
