    Pros

    Big bang projects that go no where.

    Cons

    Those projects get killed in couple of years and your boss gives you kudos for it...and big bonus..and more money to start another pre-failed project. The so called "Scientists" are only interested in getting more patents for themselves and not interested in commerce.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the work and let 3M and Dupont kick your butt

    Pros

    Dow is very people oriented, provides great training opportunities. I love how there is always work to be done, I feel like I can add a valuable contribution every day. Pay is very good for ME's. There is a lot of growth potential in the company. Dow has very good ethics, puts safety first.

    Cons

    Seems like a lot of work is spread over not enough people some times. Some of the management systems that are used can be counterproductive/reduce efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on rewarding people on the work that they do, especially on the lower/middle levels (i.e. plant operations staff)
