    I have been working at Eastman

    Pros

    Eastman is a great company to work for. The company has been good to me and my family for many years.

    Cons

    The benefits of Healthcare keep declining but seems to be a trend throughout the US at other jus as well. Other than that, Eastman is a great company.

    I have been working at Eastman

    Pros

    Fantastic and enthusiastic culture. The people I work with all work well as a team. The benefits and compensation is very competitive. In a scientific community, some people tend to be selfish when it comes to ideas and results, but everyone I've met at Eastman isn't selfish or greedy. Everyone wants to share the success.

    Cons

    In a changing work environment across the entire continental U.S., the job ladders and structure is a little outdated. There need to be more opportunities for 4-year degree holders to move into exempt roles, especially in research.

    I have been working at Eastman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It really is a great place to work. The pay is good, and benefits are comparable. There is ample opportunity for training and working with many different people. There is a sense of community and family. The company is growing with many opportunities in areas in which Eastman leads the market. Teamwork and networking are emphasized strongly. Safety is a top priority at Eastman.

    Cons

    Some things take a while to get initiated or to shift gears. Some of the petty things that should be a simple decision take a longer amount of time. Teamwork and networking are emphasized strongly, depending on your take on this.

    Pros

    There are job opportunities throughout the company that allows employees to build on their knowledge by getting to work in different areas through out their career at Eastman. Everyone has the same goal - to make Eastman a successful company.

    Once you top out in your bracket there are no other promotion levels and to move into another bracket is very difficult.
