Company Culture

Huge disparity in expectations between upper level management and lower level management.

Support from management

Most upper level management have NO idea what lower level employees do!

Teamwork

If there was teamwork their stock wouldn't be sitting at $2/share!

Freedom to work independently

Everyone works independently! Poor teamwork!

Internal Communication

Business units do not share best practices! NO incentive to do so!
Friendliness is preferred over candidness! Don't be truthful if it may offend someone!

Gender Equality

Chesapeake values diversity! Job placement is centered on diversity rather than qualifications!

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older, experienced employees were let go about six years ago to reduce salary overhead. This left a void in experience! Millennials think they know EVERYTHING! They don't!

Career Development

There are NO competency programs for employees! Advancement depends upon image not performance!

Overall compensation for your work

Salaries are lower than comparable positions in the energy industry.

Office / Work Environment

Employees are extremely friendly

Work-Life Balance

Excellent working hours! Many show up about 8am. Go to breakfast and return about 9am. Take a 1 1/2 lunch hour then exercise at the gym for an hour. Most are gone by 4pm.
This constitutes a 9 hour work day!
And they wonder why nothing gets accomplished!

Company Image

Why do you think this energy company has a "Penny Stock"!

Job Security

Be candid - be fired! They would rather you maintain the appearance of being a team player than telling incompetent team members the truth!

Workplace Safety

Corporate office typically has the worst safety record!

Challenging Work

Managers are more concerned about their image within the company than providing results! Incompetence is accepted - Be a team player and your career is solid!

Inclusive / Diverse

Chesapeake values diversity! Job placement is centered on diversity rather than qualifications!
I was the ONLY employee on my team who met qualifications required to hold the position!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Share best practices between business units Develop competencies for every position Promote based on performance not image

What I like about the company

Some Millennials are willing to learn

What I dislike about the company

I was hired to advise. My recommendations lead to increased production in the the Eagle Ford business unit. My recommendations lead to significant cost savings in the Appalachia business unit.
I was fired because I was too direct when dealing with incompetent team members and Millennial Engineers!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Be extremely open and transparent. Also trust your employees.

What I like about the company

For the first 5 years, it was an amazing company to work for. Very enjoyable, but also worked very hard. Once the change in management happened, a new CEO came in and changed the culture. It was not well accepted.

What I dislike about the company

How management said they were open and transparent, but were actually not at all.

  • I would have them hire more women.

What I like about the company

I have only been working at CHK for 3 months, but everyone has been very welcoming and I enjoy the work.

What I dislike about the company

There could be more effort to bring diversity to the workplace. There aren't very many women.

  • I would just ask that our leadership show more initiative in investing in sustainable energy for future generations as we are an Energy company that needs to explore more green energy for the sake of our environment

What I like about the company

I feel that they put a real conscious effort to make sure that the hardest working employees are sought out and honored for their hard work and dedication. I feel that they value all our work and try to show their appreciation by hosting company events to encourage more teamwork but mostly just to say thank you to their employees. I get a long with all my co workers and supervisors and they all respect me. Our jobs are tough on out personal lives but at the end of the work week I feel fulfilled and a sense of purpose for the job that I am doing.

What I dislike about the company

I feel that as an energy company we should have more initiatives in place to conserve energy in our office place and other remote locations that we do jobs at. Lately I have noticed that profits are foremost important especially now with the state of the Oil & Gas industry in Oklahoma has made us more profit driven through any means necessary and I don't quite like what kind of culture we are fostering

  • Fewer closed-door conversations, more open communication and transparency.

What I like about the company

Great benefits and senior management is interested in developing employees.

What I dislike about the company

Management seemed very secretive and held information close to the chest. Very disappointing turn of events. Promoted individuals with little to no experience in the department or function. Some individuals did little to no work and were regarded highly by management. There was a lack of promotion opportunities for multiple employees due to strict HR requirements on experience.

  • Christmas bonuses, more fun activities, and less time wasting cultural training. Make a place that people want to work, not a place of regret.

What I like about the company

Tuition reimbursement and annual bonus. We use to have parties and speakers, but in the cost cutting measures they cut back on wasteful spending.

What I dislike about the company

Wasting money on Senn Delaney culture training. Don’t reward employees enough or at all. Placing of managers without experience into leadership roles. Priorities are out of wack.

  • I stand behind all of the executive decisions that have been made at my company. Therefore, I do not have anything to contribute to this question.

What I like about the company

Chesapeake encourages learning to be an ongoing process. I am going back to school and they are paying for part of my tuition. They value me as an employee and it truly shows.

What I dislike about the company

Nothing I can think of that I disapprove of.
