Free Gym and every other Friday off

Great place to work!
FINANCIAL ANALYST (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKNovember 15, 2016
Had a great boss who mentored me in multiple areas including financial analysis, budgeting and forecasting and taught me to think outside the box. The company was very involved in bettering the community and making downtown OKC a great place to work. Co-workers were great and I couldn't have asked for a better company to work for.
Pros
Discounted lunches/onsite gym
Cons
Healthcare benefits had decreased over the years but I think they have went down across the board, not just at Devon.

selfish, not cooprative and fun work place
operator (Former Employee) –  Conklin, ABSeptember 1, 2016
It used to be a fun, happy and productive place to work, but after some people left, especially some team leaders left , the culture went to down the average ! There was competing or finger pointing or complaining , but not cooperation and teamwork! Some team worker was so selfish, cold hearted, no caring at all and lots of back stabbing, or trying to give bad or difficult time behind! No common rule for each one, so no fairness there, like covering the corresponding course tuition : some people got covered , so they could move faster by taking part in courses in school! A lot of politics , same mistake , but not same treatment for different people ! the culture not for getting work or company business better , but worse! So glad left!
Pros
pay
Cons
selfish, politics and unfairness, no repect for seniors or hardwork
