IT DSSM Co-OP (Former Employee)
Lexington, KY

ProsAshland is a great place to co-op with they have very good relations with the local universities. I was hired with little to no exsperence and allowed to absorb as much knowledge as i could get my hands on.

ConsIf you are not accustom to working in a cube 8 hours a day Ashland is not for you. There was no oppertunity to move into a full time position after co-op however this was mostly due to econmy down fall at that time.

Advice to Senior ManagementMgmt needs to be clearer about terms of employment with co-ops. I ran up against a 6 term limit that was not disclosed when i began working.
