What do you like best about the leadership team?

Leadership Reviews

Everyone works together and finds the answer no matter what

Communication and human centric management

What does the leadership team need to get better at?

Leadership Reviews

Treating their employees better...Seems it is always about the company and little about the worker anymore ..completely different than it was when the original owner of the company was alive.

More attention should be paid to employees' ideas and concerns.

Prioritizing retention and employee development from the bottom-up. Middle management destroys efforts of diversity and inclusion by relegating minorities to the least priority and least visible tasks. Leaders should mentor and formally sponsor minority employees at the entry levels.

Implementing changes in a fashion that is clear and exact.

What is the best part about your compensation package?

Family, rent and travel/commute support, full coverage health insurance and annual bonuses

401(K), dental, Bonuses, Incentives, Equities

Good 401K package and benefits.

Why do you feel undervalued and what would make you feel better about your compensation?

Compensation Reviews

If I am paid the wage I am owed instead of being given the run around about why I havent received a raise when others around me have started off making more that I do

The global director stated to my face that my gender and race would prevent me from advancing in this company. I am not recognized for the business value that I bring no matter how well-documented it is, and am severely underpaid. Salary should be a respectable amount to reflect my efforts.

What's going wrong and how can it be improved?

Outlook Reviews

Out-dated attitudes about race and gender prevail, and top talent is not being retained. If Ashland doesn't aggressively promote from within, in a few short years the company won't exist. If young techs keep leaving and older scientists keep retiring, there will be no R&D, for example.

Current job security uncertainty within the company as large changes are being made.
