Pros

Family culture for the most part was good and the employee benefits was above average for the area. Community relations is excellent.

Cons

Top heavy management that doesn't acknowledge the average working Joe's abilities and work ethic.

Advice to Management

There is a lot of weight at the top and at most all upper management levels. Operations personnel are carring the weight of the company. Reward them more.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    I 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.

    Advice to Management

    Quit spending like a drunken sailor and then telling employees we are in a recession and that cuts are inevitable.. Lots of landscaping and beautification when the company and the economy are tanking.

    Pros

    They take their co-op program very seriously. The plant site in Kingsport is very large so there is a wide array of opportunities for students to gain experience. Mentors and supervisors work hard at helping new employees become acclimated with the environment. You are allowed to work on meaningful projects that are challenging and exciting. Benefits are excellent for a co-op position. The company seems to take very god care of their employees, through encouraging them to improve their health and by allowing flexible work schedules. All of the employees are easy to work with and a joy to be around. Everyone is helpful and polite. Their commitment to safety is outstanding, you can be sure you will be safe as long as you are smart about doing your job.

    Cons

    Not much to say here, if you are OK with living in the middle of nowhere TN.

    Advice to Management

    None.
