      Pros

      Historically one of the best companies to work with in the oil patch. The last 5 years have been challenging for the entire industry and Devon was no exception. However even in hard times they treated employees as graciously as possible.

      Cons

      The entire industry is struggling at the moment, so there are limited opportunities for growth and advancement.
