    I have been working at Ashland Water Technologies for less than a year

    Pros

    Wonderful mentors with years of industry experience, leaders of their respective research backgrounds. Ability to utilize all resources and facilities to see through all projects beginning to end.

    Cons

    None to speak of really. Management tends to be on the older side, however this may have changed since my internship in 2009.

    I worked at Ashland Water Technologies for less than a year

    Pros

    The people were great and are really interested in seeing everyone succeed. The company has great perks, even for interns, and really wants their employees to succeed and be happy.

    Cons

    In at least some positions, there seemed to be the possibility for a lot of stress in order to make sure systems are always up and running.

    Advice to Management

    Determine a rotation for being "on call" to fix any problems that come up, this way the most senior member of the team will not always be "on call."

    Advice to Management

    Reward sales people. Provide employee guidelines for cutting through the red tape.
