    Pros

    Good employees across all business units. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Horrible Management: Culture was destroyed by new leadership, new leadership laying people off and not announcing anything, great people and outstanding employees being fired, new leadership manage through retaliation and intimidation, remaining employees are terrified.

    Advice to Management

    You destroyed our culture, and wiped the floor with our core values. HR systematically mistreating people, countless examples. SAVE THE COMPANY!

    Pros

    New CEO. Hopefully he makes big changes

    Cons

    Very bad management. They continue to be scammed by a CIO who is clueless when it comes to IT. He only cares about getting his company car, a paid apartment while he lives out of state, and a nice salary. This CIO brings in more clueless people he calls Directors. The IT department is so focused on Business Analysts instead of producing results. The business units don't need a babysitter to get in the way of doing something...

    Advice to Management

    Be ashamed of yourselves for how you treat people and continue to collect a paycheck. Get rid of all the Directors. Especially BIS. You don't need so many managers and directors to produce results. Invest their salaries into better functioning systems and a stronger network instead of managers that cant show results

    I have been working at Chesapeake Utilities full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Perks benefits time off weekly pay

    Cons

    No job security, hateful management, can be fired at anytime for anything, management lies, HR lies, management retaliation. Management cares more about company image than anything else.

    Advice to Management

    Firing a well respected executive Vice President says everything about ceo mike mcmasters and the executive board. White male dominated upper management. Management violates company core value “Caring”. They rule by fear and could care less about employees.

    I have been working at Chesapeake Utilities full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Cares about its customers - Cares about its employees - Cares about the bottom line (we are a public company that has to answer to a board and shareholders) - Great benefits, including affordable Health Insurance, PTO, sick time, 401K matching, etc. - Encouraged to give input, and actually feel like your being listened to! - Support from management

    Cons

    - Internal processes are antiquated (part and parcel of working for a public utility) - Need better CRM tools to do job well - Sometimes wonder if we're getting the senior level support that a couple sister companies receive

    Advice to Management

    - Keep encouraging and building up your employees and fighting for what you know is right. I count it a privilege to work in my department, and one reason is management that listens, is responsive, and "goes to bat" for their employees!

    Employee-focused company - likes to engage employees on a regular basis which helps create a nice culture. Competitive pay, good benefits, lots of community activities to take part in. Great place to start career and retire from.
