    Former Employee - Account Manager in Stevens Point, WI

    I worked at Ashland full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most people are fun to work with and I got to have a large variety in my routine from working with people to lab analysis to turning a wrench fixing equipment.

    Cons

    I was criticized and looked down on for taking time for doctors appointments while managing through some serious health issues. They say that family and your health comes first with one breath, but in the second breath required 70-80 hour work weeks for about 6 months straight, making me cancel planned (communicated several months in advance) vacations, missing family christmas/thanksgivings, etc. While I know this type of stuff varies highly based on who your management chain is, I find it disgraceful that any company would keep a manager that treated me the way they did. While going through a feat with cancer, you'd think they'd be more helpful and supportive of a lightened work load and making sure I would be able to spend time with family while you can, as opposed to telling you not to leave town, asking you to move doctor appointments, and asking why you don't have more work done.

    Before this scenario I had a passion for how great the company was that I had a privilege to work for, but what has transpired in the last 12 months has left me with nothing but disdain and contempt for such a company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Treat your team members the way you would hope to be treated if you were in their shoes.
    -Some things happen, but try to be respectful and supportive of having some type of a life outside of work
    -If your employee is hitting sales targets and their customers are happy, just let them do their job.
