    I worked at Ashland as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stable company, great environment, excellent pay. Treat students as regular employees and give us real projects to work on. Lexington campus is nice with lots of cool stuff, like a good gym, barber shop, Ashland/Valvoline swag store, events, and charity work. Management is readily available, interested in helping you and seeing you succeed.

    Cons

    Training is dreadful! Lots of learning on the fly, figuring stuff out yourself, and asking full-timers questions. Ashland also seems to be unfocused in their overall business plan at the moment, buying companies and spinning off business groups all at the same time. No current budget for hiring in new talent, and the vast majority of technical staff is within a few years of retirement - major brain drain is imminent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make room to bring some co-ops on full time after graduation, and get rid of your dead weight!
