Reservoir Engineer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 October 2017
One thing that keeps Devon above many producer companies is gender equality. This even extends to working in their fields up North. In general, understanding of individuals and their varied needs is well taken into account in this company.
worked for few year in the thermal side of Devon Canada. Devon needs to send some of the mid and high level management back to school. They just know simple gas reservoir and can not handle the SAGD complexity. devon also needs to change the simplified view of thermal projects and get to the details or stick to gas business and sell the SAGD.
Was good company to work for but was there only there for 4 yrs. and seen high high turnover of operators.

operator (Former Employee) – alberta – 18 October 2012
- Zero trust - I learned there are better places to work - Poor very old school management - Work with some good guys - Very strange company, would always tell you how great a place it is to work, over and over. Have never had a job like that before - Best part of the day was leaving, -
Great place to work as long as you don't mind being treated with a kindergarten mentality.
Competent, hard worker. (Former Employee) – Calgary – 23 September 2012
Hmmm. Great place to work until 2009. Open door policy?........... Hmmm.... Don't even think about rocking the boat. "Cult like" policies and procedures. Seems they will hire anyone. There was a girl who showed up in " Hello Kitty" attire every day. Hmmm....
great atmosphere until 2009....then things started to get a liitle strange....very tense.
favortism, management overlooks sub par performance, more concerned if you are 5 minutes late than what is accomplished at overall.
