Nice Gym
Senior Strategic Sourcing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB4 January 2018
Management isn't that great. I felt left out of meetings and unable to be effective in my position. Sitting in your office alone with nothing to do despite asking for work is not great.
Pros
Gym

Great place to work and develop skills
HR Analyst (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB7 April 2016
There is always something to learn each day and opportunities to develop your skills. Culture of having a fun, friendly and honest work environment.

Challenges are inevitable but through these challenges emerge how each individual contributes to the success of any project.

Productive, educational and the most fun people to work. Accommodations are excellent with good food, gym and game toys.
Field Administrator (Former Employee) –  Jackfish, AB11 December 2015
Working for Devon is like working with a loving family. Everyone works hard but still have time for camaraderie, to readily offer assistance in any workload or to offer sympathy when stressed just to show they care.

That is why the hardest part of the job is being let go due to cost cutting with the oil price in crisis.
Pros
Devon-Jackfish has the best people to work with. Will miss them terribly!
Cons
Very sad that job security depends on the oil prices.
