Pros

Ashland allows a good work/life balance, judges employees fairly, and treats them well (except for pay, which is below market).

Cons

Pay is below market and bonuses are usually paltry. The other issue is stress from all the changes, they add a new business unit or sell one off about every 18 months or so, and every time you're left wondering if this time it will cost you your job. But while you're there, it's a pretty good company once you accommodate yourself to the low pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

bring the pay up to market. In Ohio and Kentucky Ashland relies on attachment to the local community to retain employees, mobile employees leave often for better pay.

    Pros

    Good location, good perks, some nice benefits

    Cons

    senior management was not competent, perks for senior execs were outrageous, chances for advancing were slim, training was non-existent, showing favoritism was a norm and not the exception

    No advise because they wouldn't take it anyway
