    I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with talented colleagues in a variety of areas, with high degree of responsibility and impact early in your career as well as over the course of a long career

    Cons

    Dow touches and enables so many industries and products, it's sometimes difficult to communicate the positive impact we make on consumers and society

    Advice to Management

    Continue to tell the Dow story in a clear and candid manner. We're a great company and don't need any hyperbole to share the positive impact we have!

    I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are very good, particularly, Dow still has a pension plan for every employee that is not the case in the most of US companies.

    Cons

    The career development within Dow is generally good, but for some departments/sites, the opportunities are limited. Be mindful to choose a good one to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employee career development, particularly for those ones working in small departments/sites,

    Pros

    Dow truly cares about employees' career development and very importantly, their personal well-being and safety. The large size of the company means opportunities to learn, structure in company procedures and great benefits! Fantastic place to work!

    Cons

    Sometimes, due to its large size, employees attend meetings, etc that seem unnecessary.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I worked at Dow Chemical as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very educated team mates. Dow chemical has some good benefits and amenities for the employees, that are hard to find in a manufacturing company. I worked at their head quarters office in Midland.

    Cons

    Midland, MI, is a remote/forest location with nothing in and around with harsh winters. I relocated there from bay area and ofcourse relocated back to bay area.

    Pros

    Awesome schedule flexibility, high degree of responsibility at early stages of career. Good leadership, able to pave your own way in the organization.

    Cons

    Can be a high - pressure job, sometimes agility in marketplace is slow due to size of company. Otherwise, not too many cons - location of headquarters is not in a major city.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in training, mentorship, and grooming the next set of leaders. Commit to making business easy to transact with customers. Continue laser-focus on end-use applications and value in the supply chain.
