Eastman is uneventful and having a hard time going to the next level.

I have been working at Eastman Chemical

ProsEastman is in a good location. Promotional opportunities are ok. The company generally stays up to date on current technology.

ConsI am not conficent that Eastman salaries are comparable nationally. The company thinks they are family oriented. I do not believe that senior management values people. They tend to take local people working there for granted. Kingsport is a one major employer town.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
