      Pros

      Good Benefits - Compensation, Bonus, Fitness Center, Cafeteria choices. Great Personal Time Off and 401k benefits. Friendly Atmosphere. Central location. Safety conscious. Good work life balance.

      Cons

      I really cannot think of any except that it is in the upstream oil and gas industry. Since this industry is cyclical profitability is tied to cost of commodity.

      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.

      IT Department: Too Many Dim Bulbs

      Jul 27, 2009 - Senior-Level IT Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Chesapeake provides an excellent campus environment in Oklahoma City, complete with three restaurants and a first-rate fitness center. Most campus employees have individual offices (no cubes!), about half of those with closable doors. Benefits and compensation are competitive, considering the relatively poor IT job market in OKC. The C-level execs generally are charismatic and approachable, though there are exceptions. Chesapeake gives back heavily to the community and encourages its employees to do so as well.

      Cons

      Chesapeake continues to suffer the consequences of poorly-managed growth (1000% in just 6 years). In the IT department specifically, lax selection practices have produced a top-heavy organization saturated with marginal talent at all levels. Marginal coworkers mean more failed projects and dissatisfied customers. Marginal management leads to promotions based on politics and showmanship. The department has three titular levels for technical resources: associate, "regular" and senior. Beyond that, the only advancement is supervisory. Management has developed an aversion to large, challenging projects. Given those factors, career growth potential for senior technical resources is quite limited. Finally, the corporate culture tends to the conservative side, leading to some unfortunate aspects. Internet access is heavily filtered, blocking much business-related content. The company often encourages its employees to vote for certain candidates and to donate money to the Chesapeake FedPAC.

      Demanding and unpredictable

      Pros

      The company offers good pay depending on the work performed, the best in the OKC Metro by most accounts. Campus is beautiful year round. Employees enjoy a full service fitness center with individual machines and group workouts. Employees have 5 different restaurants to choose from on campus that is exclusively available to employees only (family on Fridays). They also have a 65,000 square foot, state of the art daycare facility with great teachers and a special section designed to care for kids with the flu or other sickness so that parents don't have to miss work.

      Cons

      All of these amazing benefits are taken out of your hide. You are expected to work at a ridiculously fast rate with insane deadlines. Super stressed out workers are the norm. Also, the performance of the company depends a lot on the cost of oil and gas. Lastly, the company recently underwent a major restructuring and released over 800 people, 640 from their OKC campus.

      Pros

      Overall culture is very positive. Big focus on health with amazing fitness center on main campus and multiple restaurants. Compensation package is competitive, low stress.

      Cons

      Large company with many levels of management. Middle management is very political. I never saw promotions and bonuses based on performance, just years of experience. Very, very frustrating for people who want to excel because you see people just getting by or performing relatively poorly and there's no real recognition. With so many supervisors, there are some good and some really bad. Because supervisors can be put in the position not because of their skills but because they've just worked for the company for so long.

      Pros

      Excellent benefits and compensation. 1k bonus for having good health, 250-500 for Thanksgiving, bonuses in June and December that can range up to 3k, stock, and salary increases. Up to 240 hours of vacation time and 80 hours of sick leave (you start out with 96 hours vacation and 80 hours sick, and 8 hours paid off for your birthday) Culture where employees feel like they are a major part of their community The company name association gets you a lot of attention in state of Oklahoma Wonderful lower level and mid level leadership Campus feel is great World class fitness center Plenty of help available for work matters, health matters, and personal matters

      Cons

      None at this time. It has been a great year and a half for me.
