I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- Smart, willing, and highly competent people to work with - Brand name recognition - If you're an Engineer, you can basically write your own ticket anywhere you want once you are there. International travel encouraged, rotation among business encouraged. - You will never get bored on the job or in your career. - Excellent Training programs. - Alot of 'Lifers' here. That in of itself shows how good of a place it is to work. - Great compensation and benefits (only 1/7 companies in the Fortune 500 that still has a pension plan) - They give you alot of responsibility early on - Safety culture the best there is and is taken very seriously - Very professional atmosphere - Very big and serious on diversity inclusion. LGBT friendly- it is like an oasis in the middle of the desert (the desert being the petrochemical & energy industry)

Cons

Forced Ranking system is not favored by all but then again many highly competitive companies have something similar. Locations leave something to be desired but then again if you put in your time, the ticket is yours to write. Inherent in its size, office politics will play a part. Make sure to keep your corporate warrior skills sharp. Dichotomy between operators and salaried people. It is the chemical industry, make sure you know what you're getting into.

    Pros

    empowered people and good working environment

    Cons

    pay is difficult to measure. Company always talks about average compensation.

    Advice to Management

    get out of the way and let your departments manage as they see fit. The corporate (CEO) position is out of wack with the grass roots of the business
