    I have been working at Chesapeake Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people working at the company. The restaurants serve delicious food. Beautiful campus and we have the best of everything to do our jobs and in the way of workplace amenities.

    Cons

    Very political. Lots of the problems I see are cultural and a result of weak leadership. Speed has always been the driving currency but it comes at a very high price which we have to pay sometime. Huge amounts of inefficiency and waste. Business processes are often not well defined and often are contradictory between departments and at times within the same department.

    Advice to Management

    Accept the fact you are going to have to make some people unhappy and lay down some boundaries. It is easy to look like a champ when everything is going your way, now comes the real test. Finally, if you give someone a job to do and can't offer any help, at least don't stand in their way.

    I worked at Chesapeake Energy as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have good pay, stocked snack areas, and you can listen to music at work in some positions such as Indexing.

    Cons

    They are very strict about certain things but it didn't seem like they always told you everything you needed to know. On occasion I found myself completing work one way when they changed things and it should have been done another way. Maybe that was just my experience though.
