      Business Outlook

      Pros

      People are extremely nice, lots of weekend activities if you like hiking or want to go to cities in the area (Knoxville, Asheville within an hour, Nashville, Charlotte, Atlanta within ~3). Good pay. Can stay in Kingsport your whole career and still have a varied work environment due to the uncommonly large plant and diverse range of products made at the Kingsport site.

      Cons

      The less competitive feel is great and it makes for a mostly non-toxic environment, but there were lots of slow days. Projects overall did not seem as meaningful as others I heard about from friends at different companies.

      Pros

      Traditionally valued, ethical company that understands IT is foundational to the business and not just a nicety. Because of this, the department is properly organized and funded which ultimately makes for an ideal IT work environment. In addition, Eastman provides competitive pay, benefits and opportunity for advancement.

      Cons

      For some, the rigid team structure and leisurely pace of projects can be seen as a negative.
