    Pros

    Benefits, vacation, personal development, ease of changing roles within company. Since Dow doesn't pay top notch, you'll rarely find a vampire in the company.

    Cons

    Average salary, promotes from within company, many many layers of work processes, locations for manufacturing. Every company has bad leaders it seems. Dow has its share.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although profit is the bottom line, please don't promote bad people leaders. In the long run, this does more damage.
