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

Pros

Wages are higher; benefits decent.

Cons

Lots of layoffs, experienced downsizing every four years during my career. Advancing in career depends more on who you know than what you do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practice what you preach. Employers should be your most important asset and my advice is to do a better job to make the employees feel valued. Try to find a way to avoid so many downsizings. It hurts hiring and ruins reputations.
