IT Project Manager (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – October 18, 2018
My experience was not typical due to low oil prices and downsizing. Whole departments and floors experienced layoffs. The atmosphere was tense and as too often the blame-game creates a culture of fear. It is the nature of the industry.
Data Editor / Well Log Analyst (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – July 3, 2018
I liked the job but the oil industry crashed in 2016. I only met my direct supervisor. I crunched numbers from home. I worked on my own time sometimes until four in the morning, sometimes half a day. I was just required to get the projects given done, by X-day. I have worked on call 24/7 since 1980. I am not a good sleeper because of that life. MGM
Working from home.
Being laid off, but it was the industry at the time.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – June 20, 2018
This was a great place when I started in 2014. Since then the culture has changed drastically and well stinks. Managers pit employees against each other. Collaboration doesn’t happen. No one can make a decision. Everything has to go through a bazillion layers of management to get done. Managers play favorites in a serious way. The last round of layoffs was the nail in the coffin. Basically cleared out all the experience and kept the youngins with lower salaries. I am 29 yrs old. There’s hardly anyone left older that I can learn from. That’s a huge problem.
Contractor (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – June 18, 2018
I learned a lot about IT installment in a pretty fast paced setting. The management I had took time to teach me what I needed to do and I got it all done in accordance. Paid for our food and gave us small breaks.
Mid level Manager (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – June 13, 2018
WAS a great company; Hopefully it will be again. Problems are at the very top. The company has lost many good employees since 2008 and attracted some good people as well. They just don't do the right things to retain the best. Culture has gone sour.
A/P Accountant; JV Accountant (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – June 5, 2018
My coworkers and my supervisors were great to work with. I enjoyed my time there immensely. Devon clearly communicates their values and lives by them in every way. Benefits were hands down the best I have ever found.
N/A (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – May 30, 2018
-No value of there people, your just a number -Upper management is young, very little real experience. -New grads "innovative" style is highly regarded and usually results in programs that fail and cost the company time and money. -Very Top heavy -Forced surveys
Lead engineering data specialist (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City – May 21, 2018
Professional and structured. One of the top 100 companies to work. The freedom to allow me to travel and mentor to field sites was amazing. I had the freedom to move Devon into the Automation technology it needed
Excellent place to work, except when there are layoffs.
Constr/Facilities Tech. - Level 6 (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – May 18, 2018
Work directly with the engineer to layout the work schedule for the week. Then I was free to wok at my own pace and ask any questions as needed. Devon provided with many training opportunities to increase efficiencies and knowledge gained. The people were all great to work with and were always welcoming. The most difficult part for me was obtaining enough information about the facilities in order to do my job successful. I mostly enjoyed getting to know all the various types of people, making new friends and working together to finish a project on time!
Should be a great place to work, but currently chaotic
Geologist (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – May 16, 2018
Devon is currently trying to figure out who they are. Several rounds of layoffs and constant pruning of staff otherwise has sapped morale. Great if you work Delaware or STACK, frustrating to be in other units.
Nice offices, good perks, excellent staff to work with
