Current Employee - Reliability Engineer in Plaquemine, LA

I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

work life balance is great
you track your own vacation
good culture - most people are willing to help young people
take home laptop's and vpn access to email allows for flexible work schedules

Cons

compensation and benefits - could easily go to a competitor in the local area and get 30% raise - with same or better benefits
diversity is a good thing - but Dow takes it to far - with hiring and promotion practices

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Abolish diversity targets - increase compensation - or find something else that appeals to young engineers - otherwise - you will be in a bad place in the next 5 to 10 years

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

    Pros

    Dow was a very family oriented company and had a small town feel to it, although it is such a large company.

    Cons

    You can tell that the people higher up are treated better then the people on the bottom.
