I worked at Ashland full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some of the greatest people you could work with, enjoyed going to work everyday. The plant was doing a lot of work which kept me busy working on a wide variety of projects. My boss and mentor were both brilliant people, always taught me something new.

Cons

Management seemed to be unconcerned with lower level employees/operators

Advice to Management

Start to show more empathy with lower level employees to retain employment. You have great workers in the facility, just show them that you see that.
