    Pros

    There are a lot of great folks who work at Ashland. You will find a mix of several 20+ year employees along with those who have worked less than 3 years. The majority are team oriented and work hard.

    Cons

    Sometimes the employees get so caught up in trying to make SAP work more efficiently that we take our mind off one of the most important reasons we are around which is to service the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful when trimming costs (people) because they do a lot more for the customer than you think they do.
