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

Pros

Dynamic company with seemingly unlimited budget. Any idea out of the box was accepted as a good idea, and many goals were accomplished.

Cons

Too many young suits running around with nothing to do.

Advice to Management

There is a divide between the "have's" and the "have not's". No issues in my department, but the guys in the field feel it and resent it. Make the guys that turn the wrenches a part of your corporate culture, you will be better for it.

    I worked at Chesapeake Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice benefits package, loads of bonuses throughout the year, parking was usually pretty easy.

    Cons

    VERY LOW pay, played 'favorites' with employees - no matter how unethical the "ass kissing" was, your ability to play the corporate politics game dictates how far you go in the company. Even though there are a lot of "perks" to working there (food, fitness center, parties, etc.) once you get rid of the bells and whistles you realize that CHK is operating at a very morally bankrupt level and they care FAR more about the bottom line and public image than their employees.

    Advice to Management

    I honestly do not have any advice. I feel like this place is far too gone to save it now. It is a great place to work, but only if you have that 'special' kind of attitude.
