I have been working at Dow Chemical

Pros

The best reason I believe to work at Dow Chemical is the true global reach of this company. Where many other companies have some reach abroad, Dow is truly growing its international reach and includes opportunities to travel even at a low level

Cons

It is at the end of the day a chemical company. Many of the processes have a steeper learning curve as chemistry must be understood in some cases to understand the business operations.

    I have been working at Dow Chemical

    Pros

    -Competitive salary
    -Great corperate strategy
    -Work with some of the best and brightest in the industry
    -Very open and communicative corperate culture. Great communication at all levels.
    -Safety. Dow has one of the best safety programs in the industry with process safety pemployees involved in a wide range of international consortiums etc.

    Cons

    -Performance review methodology causes significant angst amongst employees. Forces people into a ranked system with capped quantities of employees allowed in each rank. Quite subjective and depending on how good of a leader you have, could result in questionable rankings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the performance review methodology. It is universally disliked and not well understood by the significant majority of employees.
