    Pros

    Management is very good. They are understanding, and listen and do something if you have a problem. Good pay and benefits. 4 days on, 4 days off

    Cons

    12 hour shifts. A LOT of on line courses to complete. Vacation time is used by 12 hour blocks not by the day. You end up with less vacation time than you should have

    Advice to Management

    Vacation time blocks used by the day not hours. If I want to take a day off without pay I should be allowed if the work load is light.

    I worked at Dow Chemical full-time

    Pros

    Got to work on interesting projects and was able to learn a lot. Dow is a huge company that will provide a lot of opportunity to gain industrial experience.

    Cons

    Projects were pretty easy. Although they did provide a good learning experience, I found that they wee quite short and had to try looking busy a lot.

    I have been working at Dow Chemical as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Company to work for with incredible benefits and lots of opportunities for advancement in engineering discipline.

    Cons

    When I worked at Dow there was really no down side really. Excess of meetings really but that seems like a norm with all these big companies now.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the run plant engineers more. They are the ones who handle the day to day problems of the plant and their ideas are much more grounded.
