    Pros

    Best place to work in the area - Benefits are pretty good - Pay is best in the area - Growing company with exciting plans to grow in the future - doing very well as a chemical company right now - good communication and openness with employees on future plans and goals of the company

    Cons

    Best place to work in area... if you want a similar job with comparable benefits and pay you'd have to relocate. Reclassifications/promotions/recognition do not always seem fair across the board. IT sometimes seems to be the forgotten or unrecognized group in the company. IT over the past few years has cut a great deal of budget but the workload has increased

    Pros

    Eastman Chemical is, unfortunately, the only game in town in Kingsport TN. They are one of the best (and only) large employers in the area, which isn't saying much.

    Cons

    Horrendously inhumane management (they know they have a captive workforce) and poor working conditions make this a company, if at all possible, to avoid. There is a tremendous sense that you are a meaningless pawn if you aren't either management or have a PhD (from the management's chosen schools). The politics of the place are at least as bad as anything on Wall Street, but with a southern flare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign. If not that, you might try listening to your employees, and at the very least, try not to screw your employees first when your profits go down like you generally do.
