    I have been working at Chesapeake Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay even though the tough times that the oil and gas industry is currently having. They take good care of their people.

    Cons

    Always fighting the corporate drama, not innovative enough. They need to cut more people and reorganize the company as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Be more innovative. Look to greener sources of energy to help diversify your portfolio more beside that where the market is going anyways. After all CHK is an energy company.

    I worked at Chesapeake Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Was a great company to work for, as evidenced by it's numerous years of recognition by Forbes. After McClendon was forced out, things went down hill quickly.

    Cons

    There was little room for upward mobility.

    I worked at Chesapeake Energy full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Advice to Management

    I thought the management was great. They use metrics to measure production. I always found it very impressive how they were constructive without making you feel bad if you had a bad month. They were very encouraging and supportive.

    Pros

    - Great leadership team. Those involved in my internship took a personal interest in my growth and regularly encouraged me in my work.
    - The pay is competitive as well.
    - Top notch benefits

    Cons

    The only problem with Chesapeake lies in the industry itself. Former leadership brought on a lot of debt; however, the new leadership seems to be taking the company into the right place.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits make up for the poor quality of people and disconnected management. Regular bonuses and company perks are usually a high priority

    Cons

    Poor management rewards bad behavior and breeds dissatisfaction and laziness. It tends to bring down morale even when pointed out.
