The least dysfunctional place I've ever worked
Process Control Specialist (Current Employee) – Lima, OH – January 18, 2016
The Ashland staff at Lima is a very "flat" organization of fewer than 45 employees. Operations specialists, engineers, and other professionals are engaged daily in furthering the production of useful chemicals in a safe, reliable, and sustainable fashion.
Our plant manager has an open door and every individual is welcome to present their ideas to improve safety, reliability, or productivity. It is a serious business but daily interactions are upbeat and friendly, and most everyone has a great sense of humor.
Ashland as a company is not without bureaucracy, but we get good support from our management. Opportunities for advancement internally are very limited, but Ashland is a big company and all employees are able to post for job openings anywhere in the world.
Great feeling of teamwork, interesting work, very competitive pay and benefits.
The site is not close to any beaches or mountains. Can be challenging for singles.
