"EASTMAN CHEMICAL COMPANY, A VERY GOOD PLACE TO WORK.

Pros

The company is secure financially and has implemented various measures to stay that way. The CEO, Brian Ferguson, makes it a point to send out communications to all employees advising on any effect on our company a Hurricane, or a wall street meltdown, will likely have. Most BU's have a "Family" feel to them as everyone seems to genuinely have an interest in how you are doing.

Cons

Eastman still has a somewhat "Good Old Boy" system of promotion. Openings get posted but for the most part the person who will fill the opening is prechosen, so the posting is meerly to appease the one's who will not be chosen. If one really wants to move up one must align themselves with fast movers and ride their coattails

Advice to Management

To keep up the good work. 5 or 6 years ago this company was poised for a big fall, but through Brian's leadership the company is strong. The only changes I would look at would be some of the mid level management that keeps the good ole boy/buddy promotion system in tact.

    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
