    I worked at Devon Energy for less than a year

    Pros

    I believe that the culture at Devon was the best I've worked at in terms of oil and gas. I've worked at other oil and gas companies, and I felt as though people were competing with each other. However, at Devon, everyone was very friendly and open to help and mentor. The pay at Devon was great, too. Especially as an intern. Also, there were lots of opportunities to get involved with the community by volunteering along with other great events. Finally, the way the company hires on interns was a great process. We all had a day long event, where we worked together in groups, sat through a few good presentations, and even at the end of the term we all got to do another cool activity together.

    Cons

    The only downside I can think of was that during my work term, there wasn't enough projects going around. There were times when I was sitting at my cubicle with all my work done, waiting to hear back from management regarding my request for more work.

    - The people were awesome and laid back - Work culture was friendly - Management always looking to give you more projects to grow from - The benefits were great - The experience was great - An overall great experience as an intern as the program was well established for summer and co-op students

    Cons

    - Can be laid off sooner than a lot of other oil and gas companies if downturn occurs. I heard of a lot of people I used to work with be laid off from that company.

    Pros

    Devon is one of the best oil and gas companies to work for in Calgary. The people there are top notch.

    Cons

    The internship program is not as structured as at other companies. It's up to the student to show initiative, set goals and self-monitor performance.

    I worked at Devon Energy for more than a year

    Pros

    The Records Management department instilled a lot of trust and independence in the position over time. It began with thorough training/shadowing to become familiar with the ins and outs of oil and gas records management, and ultimately turned into allowing me to be very independent once they saw what kind of work I could produce. The pay was generous, and they allowed me to work part-time during the school year (in addition to full-time summers) while most interns only are allowed to work summers. They also always made it clear that school came before work, and I respected that very much because they were always understanding and flexible with my schedule. Lastly, I was never "pigeon-holed", I was exposed to various aspects within the department so it kept things interesting. I was also offered benefits after being there awhile, which was very nice for being an intern.

    Cons

    Honestly, there weren't many major downsides that I can think of. The supervisors and employees within the department were all very nice and helpful. A significant downturn in the oil industry led to a round of layoffs, so unfortunately I was not able to secure employment in the long-term, but the company can not be blamed. It happened at a lot of firms, not just Devon. I wish management was a little more straight-forward about the layoff situation rather than keep things vague, but other than that it was a wonderful experience that I thoroughly enjoyed.
