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

    Pros

    Decent benefits, fair pay, good work life balance

    Cons

    We got a new CIO about a year ago. That CIO openly admitted to lying about reorganizations and restructuring in an open Q&A session. Company culture is shifting to be a lot more cut-throat with relative performance assessments (forced ranking with set targets for number of people 'not meeting' expectations). Some leaders outside of IT are able exert too much influence over how IT recognizes and promotes talent.... Most frustrating recently is when the least competent candidate is selected for leadership potential and despite constantly making poor choices (leading to high performers leaving the company), nothing is done about it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and actually penalize poor performers even if they have a long history of contribution.

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

    Pros

    Good Pay and work-life balance. They tell you to go home if you are working too much.

    Cons

    A lot of people feel that they are underpaid, but I am not sure. Benefits are nice, but the deductibles are high on health insurance. The bonus is good, but the company bases it on its own performance. They have some measures, but a lot of it feels arbitrary.

    Advice to Management

    Change the bonus system to reflect the pure fact that we know things will occur. The vibe is that the company has to be perfect in order to get the baseline bonus.
