Pros

Devon is one of the best oil and gas companies to work for in Calgary. The people there are top notch.

Cons

The internship program is not as structured as at other companies. It's up to the student to show initiative, set goals and self-monitor performance.

Advice to Management

Management should embrace new IT technology to facilitate communication and collaboration such as in-house social media. Devon should look towards companies like Google for innovative strategies to improve working conditions and stimulate creativity.

    Big "programs of the month" eroding their edge

    I worked at Devon Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job ownership, co-workers are like family, most direct management is supportive

    Cons

    Favorites, some management hire friends, seniority doesn't entitle you to anything

    Advice to Management

    Hire management on ability to do job fairly, not pick favorites
