I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time for more than a year

Pros

There are a lot of opportunities to try different things. The work is always different. There's never a dull moment, everyone is always busy. There are opportunities for travel and when times are good, opportunities for international travel. Overall, the company cares about it's employees and wants to keep you long-term. There are a lot of people at Dow that really care about one another.

Cons

The culture seems to have a lack of communication. It's not always easy to find the "right" answer or the "right" person. It also seems that there is more support, training, and attention for "advanced" people or those who are might be people leaders and less for those who don't.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find new ways of communication and getting employees access to better collaborate with one another.

    I worked at Dow Chemical full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Professional work place. Practices Respect and Responsibility at most levels. Advancement opportunities depending on position. Would consider other opportunities with them. Great benefits for older employees grandfathered in, less for newer employees.

    Cons

    Too many processes, too much red tape to accomplish certain goals. Guess what one might expect with such a large company. Management prides themselves as a flat organization but still too many levels of managers. Tata Business Services, poor management idea.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Farming out Supply Chain to Tata, NOT productive, lost a tremendous amount of knowledge in transition. But hey, they never knew it.
