Pros

I was treated fairly, with respect and dignity. Various opportunities were given to show my skills and compentencies. Overall, great people to work for.

Cons

Location of being about 50 miles away from any major metropolitan city is a negative to keeping good talent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open in communication to people in plants. Do not strong arm employees families when they voice their opinions on your operations

    I worked at Dow Chemical full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    compensation and benefits are good
    Plenty opportunities if you luck out with management that supports you movement

    Cons

    Poor HR Management which allows my managers to fire employees on the basis of their personal feelings. Corporate disconnected to other sites. Do not live by their own company values. No visibility to Upper management totally disconnected at plant level therefore have no idea of what their assigned plant manager are doing locally. Witnessed employees be ostracized reporting mismanagement or HR issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visit plans of responsibility frequently. Obtain feedback from the plant on how plant parents are taking their employees and truly managing the daily issues in the plant.
