    Pros

    Well organized
    Pension plan
    Good Sr. leadership

    Cons

    Burocratic (big company , too many rules/regulations)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Sr.management is sincere and cares about the employees but despite all that it still feels like you are a number... We are all working extremely hard now these days to be laid off some time.

    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.
