If money is the best part of you job then maybe.......

Corporate (Former Employee)
Midland, MI

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

ProsWages are higher; benefits decent.

ConsLots 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 Senior ManagementPractice 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
