I worked at Solutia

Pros

The people are dedicated and competent

Cons

The management is out of control. One division leadership team would spend time in kareoke bars in China (read up on this in the news to get my point) or other places (direct from2 members of that staff who felt very uncomfortable). Another Senior manager no-bid a consulting contract and then tried to cover up. Senior management had opportunity to sell Nylon division at attractive price but ended up selling at a loss. These guys are only out for themselves

    I have been working at Solutia full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company is dress down, informal and overall very relaxed atmosphere. People are very easy to get along with and generally opprotunities are given if people are motivated or seek them.

    Cons

    Since company was purchased, employees maybe moving to Kingsport or required to move for current job. Eastman is much larger than Solutia, could be a good thing if willing to relocate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep skill and jobs here, please do not close St. Louis office.
