    Former Employee - Process Improvement Engineer in Kingsport, TN
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Eastman full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Large company with a lot of different processes. Enough work to keep someone busy for an entire career. Plenty of advancement opportunities. Comparable compensation. Collaborative work environment.

    Cons

    Shifted from commodity chemical company to specialty chemical company resulted in successive rounds of layoffs to hit specialty "growth rate". Company became more corporate like after Costa took over, less about the people that make it happen and more about just money. Only way to move out of a bad fitting job is to over perform, but you are more likely to be discouraged and underperform in that situation.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Ghent

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    After having the opportunity to work for a few employers, what strikes me the most is the drive of people and the empowerment that management gives to all employees to come up with fresh ideas to improve their work environment. Also, for a multinational, Eastman employees and managers are very accessible. There's is a very open culture for dialogue. Salaries and other benefit are industry standard. In short, I can only recommend this company to everyone!

    Cons

    Due to working in a multinational, you'll need to be willing to find your own way. You can rely on peers & management, but you'll need to reach out yourself.
