    I worked at Dow Chemical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, job security, despite the environment you work in and the substances you work with, DOW does a great job at keeping you safe. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Management seems to favor the operators who spend more time sucking up rather than doing the real work. Shift work gets old after a while. You do end up making good friendships out of all the time you spend with your shift.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to those actually doing the job well rather than those trying to be your buddy. Marine Terminal Warehouse.

    I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They pay slightly above average pay, have good pto, and a mostly good atmostphere. They also offer great training.

    Cons

    Don't do anything for contractors doing the same work as Dow employees. They have been making MAJOR cutbacks. Firing people that have worked for Dow for 25+ years to rehire contracted employees without benefits or good pay.
