    Pros

    The people are nice and friendly, pay is good for the area, and it's a big name for your resume.

    Cons

    Unfortunately if you have a disgruntled supervisor he/she will make your life miserable. Most of the time I got depressed before going to work simply because I knew I would have to see my boss. Most of the others in my department felt the same way, however, so we bonded over our misery.

    I once asked my supervisor why the company wasn't more diverse (I was 1 of 4 minorities on the entire floor) and was told that Ashland was diverse: "we hire those from eastern, western, southern and northern Kentucky."

    Ashland's people are the core of the company and you can't ask for more professionalism or support.

    Can't think of any other than some of the benefit package could be better.
