I worked at Dow Chemical

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 ManagementAdvice

Check salaries at other companies and match.

    I have been working at Dow Chemical

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
