    Good pay. Flexible hours. Good team players.

    Cons

    Unstable IT environment. 4 Re-organizaions in 5 years. IT infrastructure has been outsourced and recalled on 4 separate occasions not coinciding with the reorgs. Minimal communication between support and infrastructure groups. CIO needs to be replaced. Dishonest, caught in lie during last IT townhall. Suppressed and deleted questions about the recent decision cut infrastructure group.

    Advice to Management

    CEO and board need to re-evaluate CIO and IT upper management.

    I worked at Ashland full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The intense training program and amount of support you get is far and beyond. You work in teams so you build great relationships with your co-workers. The pay is good and you get profit sharing bonuses which can be $3,000 and up!!! Great cafeteria, gym, and even a bank in the building.

    Cons

    Office gossip and technical complications can make life a bit stressful. You will find advancement oppertunities hard to come bye as most employees stay for a very long time.

    Advice to Management

    What I would advise management is to play a more hands on roll in developing your team and recognizing good talent. Don't get so caught up in the the day to day process and try to have more fun.
