    Pros

    great 401k match. up to 15%. lots of PTO. (The vacation and sick time are lumped together and based on how old you are, not how long you've been with the company.) Great health, dental, and insurance benefits. On site fitness center, health center, restaurants and child care. Annual performance evaluation with merit increase and bonuses

    Cons

    Poor leadership and leader development. Layoffs are a regular occurance.

    Learning potential is outstanding, but leadership lacks clear direction.

    Oct 10, 2017 - Production Engineer in Oklahoma City, OK
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Given a large amount of responsibility from the beginning, which creates a sense of ownership. At the engineer-level, there is true camaraderie. The company likes rotating technical talent through all the core Petroleum Engineering functions (Production, Reservoir, Completions, Drilling) so the learning potential is outstanding.

    Cons

    Leadership makes decisions based on how they believe that Wall Street will react, rather than on business fundamentals. This leads to continually changing guidance from management, and leaves the engineering teams feeling like they have no direction. As great as the camaraderie among the engineering teams is, the communication between levels is poor. It is not uncommon for engineers to evaluate a project at a manager's request, only for the manager to disregard the team's recommendation and pursue their own solution. As beneficial as the rotational program is, it leads to constantly changing technical teams. Employees are rotated every 12-24 months, which leaves few subject matter experts.

    Production Analyst

    Sep 15, 2015 - Production Analyst in Oklahoma City, OK

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Significant Paid Time Off (PTO), Quality company resources, Opportunity to expand education through internal training, and good opportunities to transfer to new departments within company.

    Cons

    A core value of Chesapeake Energy is transparency but the transparency was not consistent through my department. My department promoted employees into leadership without prior leadership experience or training to prepare them. Promotions were based on the buddy system most of the time. Lack of quality leadership and poorly qualified leaders, I decided Chesapeake was not the correct company for my future.

    Chesapeake - There are worse ships to ride to the seafloor

    Feb 21, 2018 - Production Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great benefits. Incredible campus -some of the positive aspects of Aubrey's legacy remain. The company has far more room for improvement than failure. Great place to pad your resume and try things a responsible company would never approve budget for.

    Cons

    Uninvested Leadership, short-term decision making, management that is more concerned about decisions that position themselves for their next career move than the good of the company and shareholders. The stock performance speaks for itself.
