"While making the FORTUNE list is wonderful recognition for the company, it says even more about our employees," Devon's chairman and chief executive officer Larry Nichols said in a press release. "Their values and their commitment are what make Devon a great place to work."

It is the sixth straight year America Fidelity has made the list.

"All of our efforts help us support a unique corporate culture with an eye toward providing for more than just success in business, but also fostering a positive work environment," said AFA CEO Bill Cameron. "We greatly appreciate the national acknowledgment of these efforts and fully believe our colleagues deserve much of the credit."
