    I have been working at Chesapeake Energy

    Pros

    Our leadership is strong and our employees are the best around. We have amazing 4 restaurants, a great fitness center, and much more! The Christmas lights make campus even more beautiful during the holidays. It is so rewarding to watch this company mature. We have made many improvements in 2014 and I am excited to see what 2015 holds for us!

    Cons

    I have worked other places and compared to them, I don't have any cons to working at Chesapeake. I feel blessed to be here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what we are doing to put Chesapeake first. We are a strong company and we are going to crush our competitors!

    Pros

    I am a very active person, and I love that Chesapeake's campus keeps health and fitness at the top of your mind. The restaurants have healthy options to choose from and they highlight those to make it easy to make those selections. There is also an outdoor track that makes it convenient for employees to go for a quick run on their lunch break. Fitness classes are also offered before work, during lunch and after work.

    I am also very impressed with all of the training opportunities available to employees. This year, tuition reimbursement was added as another wonderful benefit.

    Cons

    I can't think of any. The pay is competitive and the benefits are unbeatable! I love my job and love working for Chesapeake!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
