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

Logistics Planner (Current Employee) Kingsport, TN

ProsThe 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.

ConsEastman 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 Senior ManagementTo 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
