Great company!

I enjoyed my time at Devon Canada immensely! Great senior management. A few middle management people were not great at leading the people on the floor, but there was usually a way to deal with that. I miss working there.

Great place to work - before it was sold

Devon allowed for collaboration and working together for the whole of the company. Work / life balance was honored and you were encouraged to work together as a "team".

A great place to work

Safety conscious, friendly co-workers, fast paced place to work, a gym including daily classes. No longer a company in Canada :( but is still operating in the US.

Devon - Alberta's Oil & Gas Reality

It was a great place to work in the beginning, with fantastic people and a thriving work environment. Unfortunately, with the economic outlook turning grave for Oil & Gas, the project cancellations and lay-offs it became a difficult work place for everyone. In the end it was a dog eat dog world where even the survivors lived with guilt and incessant worry. Tough work environment for management and employee's.

Safety at devon is a priority no short cuts.

I learn a lot of skills like closing and opening of valves with safety precautions by following shut-down and start-up procedures. Safety is priority .

Pros

Free lunch and accomodation

Cons

Short breaks

Extrtemely good place to work, but as industry has taken a big hit sp has life at Devon.

Great place to work with excellent rewards, however so much uncertainty on job security. They do encourage a work life balance as well as encourage volunteerism.

Pros

Rewards, People

Cons

Job uncertainty

Nice Gym

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

Cons

Fun and open learning envrionment

I worked at Devon for almost three years as a summer intern and part-time contractor while going to post-secondary. I enjoyed the culture, employees, and especially loved the in-house fitness center.

Pros

Free fitness center, culture, open communication

Cons

Fitness center isn't available to contractors, only full time employees

Great place to work and develop skills

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.

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.
