A Pretty Good Place to Work

Leader (Former Employee) Midland, MI

ProsLots of opportunities if you apply yourself. The pay and benefits are good. Safety is a high priority. The culture in most plants is comfortable.

ConsMost of the large locations in the US and their headquarters location, are not places you would prefer to live (Midland, MI; Freeport, TX, etc.). There are too many "Global Leader" level people, and most have no business being there. Majority of employees have no confidence in the CEO.

Advice to Senior ManagementDow is not going to change significantly until they have a new CEO. There needs to be more thinning out of all the "Global Leader" positions, and it needs to be done in an apolitical way.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
