Shady, not able to advance, nor able to discuss things with individuals
Temp Job for records department (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKDecember 20, 2012
Cons: was a temp position, hour lunch, did not have my own space.
A typical day at work would be to pull files research them on the various links. Than printing out a label and putting it on the files than taking them to scanning. I learned different document types. I had two very helpful co-workers. The hardest part of my job was being underestimated due to my age. The job itself was easy to learn and over all fun – more... due to the fact of researching, and being able to feel like I had accomplished a lot with the files iI had finished that very day. – less

JosephR – January 16, 2013

He gets hired into a temporary position - then complains he can't advance. Temporary positions are . . . temporary, not part of the overall structure of an enterprise. He says he got job satisfaction and the work was "fun" (I get that) No comment about not getting paid. So - he gets hired for a temporary position which is enjoyable and he gets paid. That is actually more than you can expect from a temp position. You didn't get your own space? You are temporary. No, they are not going to realize real estate for a guy who is not going to stay. Oh, and if you want to "advance" in your next position, learn how to self edit for spelling.

Sr. Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Houston, TXOctober 15, 2012
Pros: every other friday i'm off

Working at Devon has been a wonderful experience with co-workers and managment.
Management has allowed me to perform and learn many duties which are outside of the administrative role. I have enjoyed working for Devon and sorry the company has decided to close the Houston Office.

On the whole Devon is a great company, at the department level it can be hit and miss. With the recent growth many managers have been promoted well beyond their capability.

IT (Former Employee), OKCSeptember 12, 2012
Pros: compensation package
Cons: clueless management, redundant work, backstabbing
Think twice before working at this company. Management is focused on consensus and getting along. This causes everything to move at a snails pace and progress to be over turned again and again because one person disagrees with the direction. This company does not understand the benefit of discussions and debate. In addition, be aware of the 'good old – more... boy' environment. Advancement and staying power is based on friendships. – less

Stay away from this company...very weird.
engineering manager (Former Employee), texasJune 25, 2012
Pros: nice offices
Cons: work place full of snakes
The culture was good in the early 2000 to 2005.
Currently the engineering department is really a problem area.

Something like 70 % of the engineers either get fired or
are made to quit.

Engineering managers are promoted based on friendships
rather than performance and productivity

Not great for contract workers.
Contractor (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKJune 21, 2012
Great company if you are a permanent employee. But if you are a contract worker, you are treated like a second class citizen, at best. Contractors be warned!!

Data Center Manager (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKJune 19, 2012
I learned a lot about IT and how it operates. They provided me the ability to build a world class data center with little interference. Hardest part of the job was creating the group and all the documents required to operate.
