I worked at Dow Chemical full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

-Compensation and benefits
-Career development opportunities
-Work-life balance
-High-caliber and friendly employees
-Good to excellent middle-managemers.

Cons

-Indiscriminate multi-year pay increase and promotion freeze in a country where a large wave of young people was hired to compensate for the retirement of a large wave of professionals. Experienced employees with a more stable career didn't mind all that much but younger professionals who were led to expect more reward from their successes and faster growth were disappointed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow for some flexibility in company-wide cost savings activities in some geographies to retain the best younger talents and avoid waste of resources expensed to train them.

    I have been working at Dow Chemical

    Pros

    Very strong ethics, ingrained culture of respectfulness and political correctness, global processes

    Cons

    Chemical industry is characterised by cyclical feast and famine, and coupled with the larger global economic uncertainty, that certainly drives everything - from compensation to development/advancement to job security and workload.

    I have been working at Dow Chemical

    Pros

    Pay, terms and conditions, even the location is good, shift pattern when there is no long tern sickness. Final salary pension

    Cons

    Banked hours, 40 hour week cover at the last minute. Bring you in on you days off for no reason but to drop your hours
