    I have been working at Eastman full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company is focused on innovation, productivity, performance and growth, not just of the company but employees as well. The company treats employees fairly and well, particularly high performers and high potential employees.

    Cons

    Given the global footprint, it is a relatively more diverse and challenging place to work. However, it is a good place for top talents looking to gain a global perspective to work.

    I have been working at Eastman full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Highly collaborative environment that requires good interpersonal skills to excel. The company and location offer an excellent personal/professional-life balance. Smart and passionate colleagues that are always willing to help if needed.

    Cons

    Extreme process orientation can be burdensome in certain situations. Opaque hiring and compensation structures can lead to disappointing results for individual employees. Extreme focus on short-term initiatives creates a somewhat hectic environment that can be detrimental to employee morale. Benefits (401k match and investment options, health insurance, family leave) are sub-par compared to major industry players.

    I worked at Eastman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The corporate office building is new with fantastic amenities. Compensation and benefits are great.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is draconian. Obedience is valued over performance and can seem like an antiquated way of thinking for experienced employees that are new to the company and trying to promote change. You will find lots of managers that earned their roles by longevity with the company not an ability to lead. If things don't work out, there isn't other employment options in the area. Some managers can be disrespectful to staff. It's a difficult company to become employed with and once onboard there is a sense that you should feel fortunate to have been chosen. The truth is, you have better options.
