    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Chesapeake Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Management WAS misguided and inefficient. No company-wide policies for structuring of departments. Doug Lawler did good job on cleaning house.

    I have been working at Chesapeake Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    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.

    I worked at Chesapeake Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Gym is nice, for $20 a month.

    Cons

    After Aubrey time, things got tight, less perks. Lots of stress of getting laid off, sold off and canned. Lots of paranoid employees unsure on what the future entails. If laid off they don't vest your 401K unless you have reached their 5 years. 15% 401k match is a joke, they give you 20-25% of it each year after it's earned. The golden handcuffs keep you from wanting to leave, because there will always be money left behind. I only got to keep a faction of my 401k match. Same applies to Stock bonuses, if you leave on your own terms they get to keep all the unvested portion, which is a lot. They got rid of the garden but had to place it back due to land contract from purchase, otherwise that would have been closed too. Any small little benefit that helped them reach Forbes Best, pretty much went away.

    Still good pay and great benefits. The campus is awesome and the community is great. Hopefully it will remain that way.

    Cons

    Its all going down hill, the company's new focus on the bottom line is at the expense of everything else including employees.

    I have been working at Chesapeake Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Top notch facilities.

    Cons

    New board, new CEO, new focus at the expense of the employees. The atmosphere has tanked and the benefits are being removed one by one. It's not the great place it once was. It might be an ok job for someone who wasn't there when it was great, but I doubt you'll see it on the Forbs top places to work ever again.
