I worked at Dow Chemical full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great salary and benefits. Management was knowledgeable, fair and approachable. Co-workers were great. All in all it was wonderful experience.

Cons

Location - was in Freeport, Tx and I commuted from Houston where I lived with my husband. After awhile the driving back and forth each day became too much and found a job in the city.

    Former Employee - Production Engineer in Hahnville, LA

    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.
