Question: is it really worth it anymore?

I have not looked at thus site in a while because I was laid off from Devon back in Feb 2016, and it turned out to be the best thing to happen to me careerwise. It sounds like things have not improved at all and is probably even worse now than 2 yrs... read more

Packing Boxes & Not Open To The Public Signs

Am I paranoid or did I notice packing boxes being transported discreetly (surprised a worker bee in the parking garage) and the "NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC" rope-off signs being situated? Please tell me it was a surprise party for someone after hours.


After going thought 4 rounds of layoffs and a job loss, the best advice I can give is to be prepared. Devon is in the top quartile for G&A among it's peers, and a majority of G&A is in compensation. You can do the math. The signs are all there, for... read more

I’m hearing some of the same echoes regarding a major reorganization by end of Q1. Close friend is interviewing at Devon and he has been put on hold. Something is brewing. You can tell by the way HR acts and senior leadership, they know and it is... read more


It's been quite sometime since I was laid off from Devon. I completely understand that it was necessary as a cost reduction for people to be laid off. After having so much time to process everything and reflect, I'm not bitter anymore and have moved... read more


Why did I knowingly pour my sole into a company that threw me to the curb? Why did I sacrifice time with my family in order to position Devon for success? Why is my name on the highest piece of steel on that tower and my heart ripped out and stomped... read more

Delayed Stock Award

You know something bad is going to happen now that they have once again delayed the stock incentive award. Will February 16th be a repeat of 2016. Mostly likely .

A layoff will happen

To all of the Devonites, if you don't think a layoff will happen don't kid yourself it will. So save your money! It will happen by the end of Q1. I used to work there and my friends who still do have told me of looming asset sales, re orgs and... read more

Probably should not own DVN stock...

My recommendation to anyone working at Devon is to not own any (or at least very little) Devon stock. If you have a lot of your money in DVN stock, and depend on it for a paycheck, you are putting all your eggs in one basket. If anything happens... read more

Devon Hires Cookie-Cutter Types

Devon has a reputation for hiring 6' 6 inch white male employees with athletic builds. Older employees or anyone overweight are ostracized by these athletic pricks. Very little diversity at Devon.

For gods sake don't hire Chesapeake Geologists

With the Chesapeake layoffs recently happening I hope that Devon doesn't hire any of their laid off geologists. Pretty much every geologist at Devon I have met that originally came from Chesapeake has been a f---ing retard. If anything, let's follow... read more

That was a down

So that was the dumbest reorg/term. DVN had a chance to fix the DBBU leadership and failed to do so. Even promoted one. Why are those leaders still employed. They are the reason that the DBBU is a dumpster fire.

! MAGA !

MAGA is all you need to know to turn this company around. Well, also Fire and Fury. He stole my band's new name!

EVP Adminstration is a Snake

Don't trust- he's not looking out for Devons best interest and if you challenge him he will make sure you are no longer there! Enough said, stay the hell away from the $6M man he is a snake to say the least! Beware! His day will come soon enough... read more

Leadership & Vision

Larry chooses as his successor for a highly motivated and forward looking energy company to a Canadian lawyer. Ouch! Next in line is a Jerry Sandusky look-a-like that possesses no vision or inspirational leadership traits. Result is a once proud and... read more

So many new faces

Oil and gas is slowly making its way back. i just have to wonder did Devon act too fast. i had many good friends and it now feels that they are being replaced rapidly. Did we really save that much money when you consider the severance package and the... read more

Anyone else feel this way?

I have been with Devon a long time, and I am getting too old to stress about start g my career over again. Does anyone think that we will make it through without layoffs? What are all of the Accountants who account for the Barnett going to Do? Can... read more

We are now 1/3 the value we used to be!

How low will we go before something happens? I make sure my work is done and I keep my head down. I know any time now they will be laying off again. I hope I can make it through another one!

At least we now know it is going to happen.

Well that takes the guess work out of knowing when the other shoe will fall. Now we just have to wait for the date and how many. Such a shame. I love working at Devon but, I understand that they have to protect that bottom like.

Get ready for more layoffs an asset sales!

Get ready for more layoffs an asset sales! Our stock price and market cap are headed south so fast we are really floundering. The only way to stop this downward spiral is to reduce overhead meaning more layoffs, reduce or stop capital spending, and... read more

Geos in the Southern BU just the worst

How can the people in this team actually still be employeed? One is an overweight loser that has an ego to big for his own good and the other I swear must have down syndrome and proves why home schooling makes weirdos. Really just the worst people to... read more

Justice served

The superintendent walked out this week is way overdue. Karma is a b--ch!!! Sad!! This use to be a great company! Wish there was a way for Larry Nichols to know how some of his upper management team really treated people and what they got away with... read more
