I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The company always emphasize on Security, Safety, Sustainability. The company is very globalized. While there are a lot of senior people in company that are quite knowledgeable about everything.

Cons

People always work over time. There are complex processes that are very time-consuming. When people are distributed in different time zones, it is even more difficult to get things done quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please reduce and shorten meetings. Don't measure people on how much time they devote to work.

    I worked at Dow Chemical full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Work Life balance processes in place
    - Pay is in the higher band
    - Job role is more generic. Helps in transitioning to other departments.

    Cons

    - Work life balance processes are interpreted by Human managers. Differs across different managers / leaders.
    - Pay being in the higher band makes switching jobs difficult.
    - Being vaguely defined, your performance is completely upto the Supervisor to interpret.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that the vision gets mutated when filtered down to the grass root employee. A great idea with a lot of enthusiasm at the top - becomes a Slave order by the time it reaches 3/4 levels below.
