    I have been working at Chesapeake Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - tremendous benefits - relaxed atmosphere - upward mobility - amenities (offices, restaurants, fitness center, etc.)

    Cons

    - immature business practices (but improving) - history of HR siding with management rather than employees

    Advice to Management

    1) Don't just put the culture on a poster, live it out 2) Find ways to keep VPs, Directors, and Managers accountable 3) Make transparency a priority

    I worked at Chesapeake Energy full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice location with fitness center and restaurants on campus

    Cons

    Not good at continued learning, not the best home life, not a positive culture, not much advancement opportunity, unstable employment caused by debt

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to continue to learn and improve in their career and personally by offering learning classes or compensation for training and certificates. Offer a path to progress in a career.

    I have been working at Chesapeake Energy

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Quality of management staff is very critical to motivation and productivity of employees. So it would be good to provide adequate training and evaluation of management.

    I worked at Chesapeake Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Chesapeake Energy has great benefits and compensation. The top level management is sound. The 401K matching is among the best. Nice campus, great fitness center. A lot of good employees.

    Cons

    The second tier and middle management is untrained and inexperienced. Poor communication of goals and objectives, poor communication overall. Poor leadership and oil price decline has resulted in low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Need experienced management from outside companies that have established leadership skills. Promoting even good performers before they are ready does not benefit anyone.

    I worked at Chesapeake Energy for more than a year

    Pros

    great work conditions. 4 1/2 day work week was great. Beautiful campus with fitness center, child care center and 4 restaurants. Excellent people.

    Cons

    oil industry is volatile right now. Layoffs and uncertain times made it stressful. Jobs were being combined which caused lots of overtime.

    Advice to Management

    perhaps to cut back on benefits in order to save jobs and increase productivity

    I worked at Chesapeake Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Its a good place to work. Lots of perks such as the best child day care and fitness center in the city.

    Cons

    The new management is trying to hard to give Chesapeake a new identity. It has lost its employee focused culture. Upper management has gotten rid of almost all the old management good or bad.

    Advice to Management

    Chesapeake at one point had some of the best employees in the industry. Not saying all the employees were good, but getting rid of managers and executives just because they were there when Aubrey was there is not how to run a business.

    I have been working at Chesapeake Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    15% matching on 401k contributions, high salary for market, and generous PTO make this an excellent place to work. The child care, fitness center, and health center are other great benefits.

    Cons

    Flexible work hours are not really flexible. Employees can come in as early as 7:30 to leave earlier but everyone is expected to work a 9-9-9-9-4 schedule.

    I have been working at Chesapeake Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great on site campus and Fitness Center. A solid bonus structure.Corporate environment is generally collaborative and friendly. Consultants are both helpful and a hindrance.

    Cons

    Trying to replicate Anadarko to a tee. Management is trying to correct 25 years of past sins over-night. Taking cost cutting measures very seriously that has got almost everyone worried.

    Advice to Management

    Actually embrace your greatest assets and invest in them. The good ones are the first to leave and the hardest to replace.

  10. "They take care of you"

    I have been working at Chesapeake Energy

    Pros

    Benefits, campus environment, competitive pay, Christmas party had Kelly Clarkson, fitness center, if you just make sure your responsibilities are taken care they don't seem to care what you do.

    Cons

    With the industry relaying on oil prices it can be scary for job security. You never know if you'll be laid off.
