    Devon Energy is an oil industry giant, bringing in revenues of $7.7 billion annually. Despite the company’s heft, employees describe a work environment that is friendly with an almost small-town feel. Workers are on a first-name basis with executives, and the company headquarters features an on-site gym and a medical facility that’s open to employees and their families. Employees are encouraged to volunteer, an example set by the CEO himself who plays an annual concert to raise money for children’s music lessons, and are rewarded for giving of their time. “The company values a good work-life balance and gives meaningful work to all of its employees,” said one worker. “I definitely feel that I can add value to the company every time I step into the building.” Read the Great Place to Work review.
