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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    Leadership can lack vision or consistency. Typical good ole boy club.

    Don't just say challenge the status quo, be willing to accept the challenge.
