    Pros

    Great benefits, very challenging environment and wonderful people to work with.

    Cons

    Salary is below industry average, but the benefits package is insane.

    Advice to Management

    Look for ways to pay and promote your top performers rather than bringing in external talent all the time.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good working environment, really nice office, everyone is very supportive around you.

    Cons

    The "boom and bust" of the business, so some weeks may be extremely busy and you might need to work overtime.

    Pros

    Lots of company perks, despite being located in field

    Cons

    Being located outside of a corporate headquarters can be difficult if you are a Type A personality. Not a huge issue on my end.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great 401k, fitness center, and food on campus.

    Cons

    If you do not work on campus you are treated like a second class citizen. Management only values themselves, they talk about cpre balues, but dont deliver on theor empty words.

    Pros

    Pros are still the physical work environment... Beautiful buildings, gym, restaurants, etc...

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Very demanding pace and a lot of office politics, especially with the new management team.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing in your friends and take advantage of the experienced work force you laid off...they have so much knowledge and could be a great asset to the company. While they have rehired many former employees, they would do well to hire more back.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, excellent co-workers. vacation time is based on age no matter what background. Huge focus on safety while in the field.

    Cons

    low compensation. not a lot of room for advancement. Company itself isn't doing well financially and you can see that trickle down to field personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Look to promote from within more.

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits. 15% 401k match plus lots of vacation.

    Cons

    My personal boss is awful but I wouldn't say he's indicative of most managers in the company

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing
