Pros

Work/Life balance, good compensation/benefits and reasonable management and HR leadership in place!

Cons

Too much politics and you must be working some years before considering you to be promoted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let's focus on capabilities and deliverables, rather than years of work and political "friendship"!

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth if you apply yourself.
    Professional work environment.
    Good leaders depending on which department your working in.

    Cons

    Too many politics within the management.
    Many senior level leaders lack experience and do not take ownership of issues in their department.
    Too many tasks involved in one role.
    Constant layoffs make a future unpredictable.
    The company relies on incompetent contractors to complete tasks.
    Terrible communication between management and employees.
    The company is not as stable as it previously was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management and senior leaders need to be held accountable for lack of productivity in their departments. Get rid of the contractors and replace them with competent Dow employees. This process of using contractors is only costing the company money in the long run.
