    I worked at Chesapeake Energy (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Amazing culture. The campus operates like a village. People become friends, workout together, eat breakfast and lunch together, and spend time outside work together as a result of the company culture dynamic

    Cons

    It's very unstable and much more cut throat than it used to be. The enjoyment has been squashed by the ever looming layoffs. Even every couple of months! Less stability at chk than ever before.

    I have been working at Chesapeake Energy as a contractor (Less than a year)

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the contract workers would like to be more involved in the Chesapeake community, but it is understandable why they are excluded at some events. The company is paying for a service, so they should get that.

    Pros

    Cons

    Difficult time in oil and gas market

    Advice to Management

    Keep working at it. I think we are getting there. Don't treat your more experienced employees like they are not important or needed. Fix the middle management lack of experience problems you have.
