Former employee here. Found out two of my male coworkers made over $15-20k more a year than myself and my two female colleagues. Younger, less experienced, less educated. Chk loves to treat the little ladies like eye candy in interior offices, while... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Chesapeake Energy Corp.
It’s been several months since the sale of the Utica and those guys are lucky to of been bought out and get of the CHK sinking ship. Anyone else glad they left,, whoa slow down- plenty of room for all the happy people to comment.
Not good for those of you who work for CHK.
A year ago, CHK purged many of it’s true leaders. People who would stand up for something, not be afraid to have dialogue or discourse in their realms of expertise. Many of those same leaders were valuable and paid as such. Experienced engineers were... read more
Based on call things could be trending up.
DL in talks with major investors to take company private. You're welcome.
Unreal how well they look compared to us.
They are serious about shareholder value. Cutting overhead significantly, selling non-strategic assets, buying stock and increasing dividends. They are flattening their organization and getting rid of functions that do not directly contribute to the... read more
3% so-called merit (CoL) increase? That will free up plenty more spaces in the parking garage.
Pay grade 18, base pay is $57k. How about you? Let’s keep ‘em honest!
Are they paying a bonus this year? And when? Don’t we usually know what the bonus pool is by now?
Show Me The Money! Can you say Layoffs? I hope I win the layoff lottery. It is the dumbest thing I have ever seen though. I have watched over the past few years, we will lay someone off, pay them a 6 months severance, and then rehire someone 3 months... read more
I hope so many people leave that they either have to go back and rehire positions that the company has just released, or they choose not too and force the already overburdened employees out the door. At a certain point, you can only eliminate so many... read more
For CHK https://m.chron.com/business/energy/article/Joint-venture-lands-mega-contract-to-build-10-13591143.php
Our team has a pool on the number of employees who will leave our great CHK between March & June (after bonuses are paid). My money is on 48 individuals at the corporate level & 24 individuals at the field level who will depart by the end of June on... read more
What did you expect? You are creating this environment where people are willing to admit their wrong doing, and then get rewarded with a public f---ging. The f---ging that occurred today could be compared to Queen Cersei being walked through the... read more
So glad I have a better job now and no longer have to feel embarrassed to tell people where I work. I can finally make long-term financial decisions because I’m not worried about playing someone’s sick game every two years.
Sit down children and let me tell you a story about the shoeshiner. So just a few months ago the shoeshiner in Bld 15 was entrusted with three delicate souls to lead, mentor, and provide professional guidance. Although everyone else knew what the... read more
Why would we be looking externally for a DM?
Did anyone get exceeded expectations this year and how are the bonuses looking?
No quotes this week!!! How am I supposed to get my daily inspiration?
WildHorse Resources Management Company, which is being acquired by Chesapeake Energy Corporation, is laying off all employees at its Houston headquarters, according to a letter dated Dec. 13, 2018 sent to the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). All... read more
Rumors are flying around that Wildhorse Resources is interested in merging with Chesapeake.
This group is in total chaos. Every manager hates the leader. No direction, no patience, not involved in any capacity.
For me, this is a good sign. The fact is that the more they buy the more their personal interest are aligned with the company’s interest. The other thing is that these people mostly care about their personal profit and wealth and wouldn't be buying... read more
We know what was behind the $1.59 anomaly on 2-19-2016 (false rumors), but with < $5 share prices for the last 18 months, culminating in an inexorable decline to $1.90 today, what gives??
Ah, but the KH/KD saga continues...even as stock price is $1.98 as of Dec 20, 9:48 AM EST Say what you will about Aubrey, but he NEVER would have allowed such incompetence and cronyism to persist for so long. Fortunately, moved all my CHK 401k into... read more
Should I take that as a good sign? Could it be that the next year could be a good one for us?
This is so great now, i love the new culture. Happy employees means more than actual work. Don't have to work hard any more. Get to sit around for most of the day and act like your working and being happy. Just need to make the ones that do work do... read more
The company announced that it has negotiated a supply agreement with the company Hi-Crush partners regarding the supply of frac sand. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but it is known that Hi- crush will supply frac sand for Chesapeake's... read more
It must be nice to be a well paid contractor and sit in your office all day working and planning your next big stock deal on E-Trade.
If you don't like your position, the Job that you are doing is too hard or you have to really work for a pay check. All you have to do is CRY to your supervisor or manager and they will move you to a new easier position. That way you can work a lot... read more
Comments may be anonymous but if you are using the company's PC or wireless service to post on this site you are about to get a note from HR.
Remember when we all we told about the grandma on the plane and that Chesapeake was the stock to own? Well since chk stock is down ~50%. Hopefully that grandma didn't buy any shares, shame on you DL
Doug Lawler gave an interesting view on the purchase of WildHorse and announced some better times for the company. This time I have to say that I agree with him. We have been through a lot and for the first time in a while, it feels like the company... read more
I don’t know why everyone is so upset. We just added several hundred thousand acres of wild horses to our circus. We are now officially the Barnum and Bailey of OKC.
It's another private-equity-backed emerging-play company getting bought by an "excessively" levered gassy E&P for "some blend of financial engineering and strategic shift," says the firm's Bob Brackett. And in the end, that deal was a disappointment... read more
