Supervisor, Geophysical Asset Management (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – December 6, 2018
Worked with mostly professional colleagues who were dedicated to Devon's mission daily. Workplace culture was relaxed and where everyone was encouraged to voice their ideas and concerns. Company is dedicated to adding shareholder value. It also strongly supports charitable and environmental causes and is widely viewed as a great corporate neighbor.
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
IT Intern (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – May 4, 2018
The benefits are among the best I've seen. However, the crunch management has started placing on employees made work more difficult and stressful. The cuts in staff force those remaining to take on much more work.
Measurement Specialist (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – May 4, 2018
Devon is a great place to work. Conveniently located in OKC. The Well is an amazing place to work out. Amenities are beautiful. Nice having NEBU restaurant so close and convenient as well as Flint Restaurant and Vast.
IT (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – May 1, 2018
It is obvious that Devon is going to be completely outsourced in the near future. Poor management decisions and the inability to listen has contributed to Devon's stock price being so low. No change is expected in the near future. Reducing headcount is not fixing the problem, just making the company even more management heavy. Not the same company that it was when I began my career there.
Great people to work with but upper management was too unpredictable
Geophysical Technician (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – May 1, 2018
I loved all of the people I worked with on a daily basis but upper management always kept us in a state of flux with pending or possible cutbacks. This led to a constant sense of dread and too many rumors.
