I have been working at Eastman Chemical full-time

Pros

Worked 20 years in production which was a challenging, yet rewarding experience. Was allowed to go back to school to work toward being Lab tech certified. Since then have even been more challenged. Very interesting job working for the last 2 years in this part of the company.

Cons

Seems like there is a point in ones career that it does not pay to attempt to improve. Upon being promoted, was informed of being cut in pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Opportunities for advancement for employees with many years of service needs to be easier to understand. Examples: Pay, rate of advancement in new job, clearer expectations. Be more open and honest.

    I have been working at Eastman Chemical full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Eastman is a company that still cares about its employees and is not afraid to show it. The people are open, friendly and helpful. The work enviornment is good and the company promotes safety and employee health. I enjoy the work I do and it feels as if it's important to the overall organization. I feel l have promotional opportunities if I perform well.

    Cons

    Parking and the amount of collaboration sometimes makes things feel as if they are moving slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing and listening to new ideas.

    I have been working at Eastman Chemical full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a great place to work with a nice work/life balance. There are lots of opportunities to move up and advance.

    Cons

    The only challenges are getting people to move to Kingsport. The company is centered in Kingsport and working to be a more global company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should continue to work on retaining their employees, in all parts of the world.
