    8. 5.0
      Current Employee, more than 10 years

      Pros

      People are easily Eastman's greatest assest. You find great people across all organizations who truly care about each other and are extremely responsible towards their committments. There is a strong team environment and it can be a bit of a family culture at Eastman which can be a tremendous benefit both personally and professionally. I also enjoy how we operate with a high level of sophistication. There are a lot of very intelligent people around the world coming from all walks of life who bring an incredible amount of talent and diversity of thinking to the table. I've really benefited over the years learning from my colleagues and peers.

      Cons

      A very matrix structure can sometimes challenge pace and clarity of decision making if the objective of the work is not clearly defined. Ability to gain alignment and committment favors those who are strong communicators.

      Company with aggressive growth strategy but keeping employees in the loop

      Pros

      Conscientious company which is going through a lot of changes (acquisitions, growth strategies) whilst at the same time looking after its employees' safety and wellbeing.

      Cons

      Due to the current changes, and despite keeping employees informed, there is quite a bit of uncertainty amongst employees as staff that don't fit in the new organisation are being let go whilst at the same time many new people are being taken on from outside the company.

      Pros

      Eastman has a great philosophy. It's like working for one big family. There are so many colleagues with different nationalities which makes work life interesting and fun. If you wish to and do your best working your way up the ladder at Eastman is possible. I've been working at Eastman for half of my life and look forward to the years to come.

      Cons

      I can't really think of any.
