    Pros

    Zero accountability - You don't have to come to work or do your job. The culture of this company is to take as much for yourself as you can. Inflated pay - To attract people, they need to over pay. Most industry experienced people stay clear of this company.

    Cons

    Once you work here, it will be a black mark on your resume that will not considered favorable throughout the rest of the industry. Good Ole Boy system is alive and well in this company. While the rest of the industry has shaken this practice off 20 years ago, the Good Ole Boy system is stronger than ever in this company. Unsafe, you might get seriously injured. Vice Presidents only care about lining their own pockets and compromise the safety of employees to do so.

    Pros

    Benefits: 15% match 401K, generous PTO, flex time, campus amenities, training provided, great pay

    Cons

    Tends to operate under chaos with constantly changing direction. Most projects are ended before there is a chance to see results. Some managers are good but then there are managers who have egos and lack the humility necessary to lead effectively.

    Chesapeake'd? Leadership varies; financial struggles; you should plan next move going in

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good way to get exposure to several plays in the US, upstream industry, etc. There are many layers to the onion and so you can learn a lot and move around, potentially 15% 401k (though vesting is rough) Compensation is great for engineering fields Work schedule (half-day Fridays) PTO - varies by experience Mid level managers are talented in some areas You might be the smartest guy in the room Industry can be exciting as prices are volatile and O&G is good ole boy CHK made mistakes early on and attempts to fix are learning opportunities for you Company has a lab and devotes resources to understanding plays in a way some smaller companies can / do not

    Cons

    Well, you might be the smartest guy in the room Company selling assets to pay off debt but reduces cash flow for next debt tranche (liquidity trap) -- you might not be there long Experience and expertise of some VPs is shallow (result of CEO placing loyal Anadarko hires into roles above their competency) Little cash for training and other employee resources for rank & file if you need it If acquired (one of a couple escape routes for CHK), it is almost certain HQ will move and synergies will be found, and so you need to know that going in Company buys-in hard internally on buzzwords and trends to sell to investor community (follower, not leader) as it tries to point to growth strategies As transparent as they attempt to be, you'll have little idea of "important" stuff as it's closely held Your VP may not know your name (even in small depts) as there are walls A lot of skeletons in the closet in Legal, Land, and Marketing depts
