Pros

Great people with a can-do spirit. Dow has a reputation of overworking their employees, but this is not seen so much in Engineering Solutions. Engineering Solutions is perfect for someone looking to reap all the benefits of a large company, but still have a 8-5 job (very flexible on hours).

Cons

As a Civil Engineer there are not many opportunities for upward advancement. The only opportunities are to become a project manager, or to move into a non engineering role.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My only advice would be to the Engineering Solutions department to not try and be as competitive with other outside engineering companies because it takes away from the current employes.

    Pros

    Dow has a good strategy for growth, strong talent base, and excellent safety record. In addition, you have a lot of choice for career growth and job changes are strongly encouraged.

    Cons

    Dow is very process oriented, which can slow down or make simple tasks cumbersome. It also may over value employee movement between businesses and positions. Job movement is good, but the way to advance is largely based on changing jobs. It makes it hard to develop experts in niche areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work guiding the organization.
