I can only talk about my experience here so far and I really haven’t noticed that the atmosphere is anything particularly more toxic than in other companies I’ve worked for. On the other hand, it was only before I came here that I was warned that the atmosphere was unhealthy. Purely out of curiosity, what does "toxic atmosphere" mean to you? There are people who generally complain about the toxic atmosphere, and in fact they are bothered by only one or two difficult colleagues.

I have always heard bad things about Chesapeake and the toxic work environment. Had the chance to work with some Ex-Chesapeake people at a different company and they were backstabbers who talk good to your face and then kick you under the bus. What goes round comes round.
You haven’t seen toxic. Wait till the new COO is fully engaged.
Toxicity at CHK goes like this: To keep your job, you must be a chameleon and learn to blend in with your surroundings. As management changes, you switch colors on a moments notice. These chameleons have mastered the skill of how to do this whilst destroying the reputations and characters of hard working, honest, worthy co-workers. They always seem to sidestep just enough to dodge accountability for their actions while seemingly being able to pass off blame of their shortcomings to the exact same folks that tried to warn them of imminent failure.
Toxic atmosphere is rewarding and promoting the poor leaders and back stabbers while pushing out the ones that are just trying to do their own job.
