    There are hazards of working at any chemical company. You just have to be aware of your surroundings and watch out for your coworkers. The smells of the plant can be intense and unpleasant at times.

    Pros

    Eastman has a strong set of core values that guide all decision making. Eastman understands that a strong learning culture is key to sustaining long term success and consequently makes regular investments in development activities for all team members.

    Cons

    Eastman culture and non traditional locations of major facilities is not for everyone. Focus on quality of work life and outside of work standard of living is not valued by some people as much as others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue setting high performance expectations for the company.
