Pros

Well organized. Great people. Great training programs.

Cons

Lots of beauracracy type paperwork and red tape. But it comes with any big company. They don't pay the most and will tell you straight up.

Advice to Management

Check salaries at other companies and match.

    Pros

    Work with many of the best in the industry. Dow Chemical has good reputation of excellence and people are usually willing to help out and collaborate on projects.

    Cons

    Compensation is of a chemical company ... does not compare to a petrochemical company like Exxon or Shell or Chevron. Freeport location not very pretty ... but that's true for any plant environment.

    Advice to Management

    Take in feedback from employees on company decisions and communicate path forward better. Employees sometimes feel in the dark or like their opinions don't matter. This isnt all the time, just sometimes.


  2. There is no better company to work for as a student.

    Pros

    With a company this big they are able to almost custom make a internship/ co-op experience. If you are looking for a company which is supportive of employees working towards finding their own role and interests Dow Chemical is the company for you.

    Cons

    As with any chemical company often times plant locations are not too desirable. Also if you are looking for a small company feel Dow Chemical is not for you, even-though plants themselves may be tight-knit the company as a whole is very large.

    Advice to Management

    The management I had experience with was very hands on and informative. I would suggest maybe more directive advice on scope of projects.
