I worked at Eastman Chemical full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Well led company being positioned for sustained growth and many opportunities for the technical and management track positions.

Cons

Headquarters is located in a small rural community in Tennessee which is nice for those seeking a slower pace lifestyle but unbearable for those who like larger cities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None.

    Pros

    Reasonable cost of living, no traffic, generally good people to work with, competent employees.

    Cons

    System of choosing leadership is a serious issue - bad managers arent removed and can cause tremendous disruption. There are too many directors and too many bad directors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, please, please take more time and care in selecting directors and evaluating their performance. These individuals are chosen early in their careers and many dont receive adequate vetting. And no, any director cant automatically do any other director-level job.
