    I worked at Eastman full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities to try a lot of different kinds of jobs. Changing jobs every three years to try something new not uncommon, great way to get a good view of the company. People are genuinely nice, polite southern culture, and East Tennessee is a gorgeous place to live.

    Cons

    Management does have their favorites, options for growth if you weren’t on that list are limited. With the southern culture comes some passive aggressiveness, they are not great with conflict. There are some limitations to the culture of the area, lack of diversity especially with trying to raise a young family.

    I worked at Eastman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Kingsport is a great place to live if you like outdoors, want a short commute and want a cheap lifestyle. (It’s cheap because there is nowhere to spend money)

    Cons

    Eastman moves at a snail pace seriously company who wants to be a specialty chemical company needs to be fast and agile. They are stuck and been spinning in place for years now. There is very much so, us vs them mentality. There are golden children (typically home grown talent committed to the area - that’s fast tracked) and there is everyone else. No incentive to working hard. Be a local or be gone is the motto.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with for the most part who care about doing a good job.

    Cons

    I have been with Eastman for many years. For the past few years, top leadership within the company continues to push changes and emphasize performance in a way that clearly indicates the bulk of the workforce does not seem to be valued. Lately there has been a push to emphasize certain HR policies in such a way that there is increasing division across a very large part of the workforce. It is getting increasingly difficult to specially recognize top talent which causes those folks to be disappointed. The obvious focus is a sustained short term strategy to get the stock price up which is something most people definitely desire. In years past, we have attracted lots of professional talent from higher paying jobs in part because they wanted out of a culture that Eastman is now trending towards. One effect is to make it much easier for someone to leave Eastman and go to another employer, since we are losing the culture advantage. A watch out - looking through some other reviews and based on my experience I think that there are quite a few fakes. Also, the company has strongly encouraged employees in the past to do a review on glassdoor.
