    I worked at Chesapeake Energy as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The campus is incredible and the restaurants are delicious, lots of activities going on all the time, friendly and supportive co-workers

    Cons

    Workload was below average: Lots of free time with nothing to do. I asked and was told is was somewhat the culture. Also a volatile company, not something I would feel comfortable at full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should look at the workload of employees and shoot for a better balance. Culture also feels very rigid and cold.

    Pros

    Good benefits, gym, restaurants, etc. They have spent money to ensure that employees have opportunities to stay healthy and such.

    Cons

    A little bit of micromanagement. Supervisors are very much involved in your daily life, but on the other token seem to be available for the most part for questions.

    Pros

    One of the best companies I've ever worked for. Allowed me the opportunity to build and develop my own department. Great leadership and wonderful co-workers. Team effort all the way around.

    Cons

    Never ending 60-70 hour work weeks. Felt like we were going 100 miles/hour every day.

    I worked at Chesapeake Energy full-time

    Pros

    The pro's are the benefits (15% 401K match), the restaurants and the gym. I also really enjoyed the location of the campus in NW Oklahoma City.

    Cons

    All of the departments are stove piped which has led to many inefficiencies. Also the hypocrisy of the new "core values" is comical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Accountany

    Pros

    Great campus restaurants and gym. The benefits are very competitive. Great community supporter

    Cons

    Horrible supervisors and bosses, they do not recognize past experience. Want to start you at bottom again to test you out in their 60 - 70 hour grind. They love micro manage and brow beat you. Verbal recognition for going above and beyond is little to non existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You hire good people. Trust them more and give them verbal recognition. It costs you nothing but a little time

    Pros

    They have plenty of ways to advance within the company. The benefits are great!

    Cons

    I really enjoy learning new things, and in the past there has always been several training classes, however due to recent changes within the company there are fewer opportunities to take training classes.

    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!!

    Keep up the good work!
