    Pros

    Good work-life balance, talented co-workers, great company benefits package and compensation

    Cons

    Difficult to advance your career - advancement based on who you know and depends on the success of your ideas and project work. Leaders don't tell the truth and motivate others through public shaming and fear mongering. Leaders are interested in keeping their friends around them at the expense of others, no matter the cost.

    Accountant- CHK

    Pros

    This company treats their employees very well. Pay, benefits, PTO, and tons of extra over the top perks. Beautiful Campus: Gym and restraraunts are amazing. People are very professional, and there is a laid back environment. They always feed you. It's amazing!

    Cons

    I have no problem with the company. If I have anything bad to say it would be that from stories of the Aubrey days, and even while I was there the company is wreckless with how they spend their money on a ton of unnecessary stuff. It's great when commodity prices are up, but I believe a more cost efficient approach should be implemented for when prices are down. I didn't care for the Accounting job from the start ( so boring) and I wanted to start looking for a new job after three weeks. That's a me problem not a Chesapeake or Accounting problem. Like I said the people are very professional and nice. However it doesn't take more than a couple minutes on campus to realize you are amongst the assembly of perfect people. Aka arrogant people that think their too good for lessor people.

    All bells and whistles

    Pros

    Nice benefits package, loads of bonuses throughout the year, parking was usually pretty easy.

    Cons

    VERY LOW pay, played 'favorites' with employees - no matter how unethical the "ass kissing" was, your ability to play the corporate politics game dictates how far you go in the company. Even though there are a lot of "perks" to working there (food, fitness center, parties, etc.) once you get rid of the bells and whistles you realize that CHK is operating at a very morally bankrupt level and they care FAR more about the bottom line and public image than their employees.

    Pros

    Your coworkers are your best resource. Very team oriented company. Your supervisors will likely have an open door policy, and will not hesitate to assist you if you have trouble doing or understanding something.

    Cons

    Chesapeake is on a hiring freeze, and will probably not hire anyone in the near future. There are some people who have been contract workers for a few years that still have not gotten a full-time offer.
