I worked at Dow Corning full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

flexible schedule, co-workers attitude to have everyone succeed, ability to be honest without any retribution, varied markets each with their challenges, the ability to have a varied career go from technical to marketing and back,

Cons

some of the internal procedures seem to take longer than I anticipated, sometimes a slow response for business decisions, sometimes the internal acronyms do not match industry,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

it might be tough to attract seasoned talent after the last round of cut backs

    Former Employee - Chemical Engineering Intern in Hemlock, MI

    I worked at Dow Corning as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Dow Corning heavily invests in their student interns. They provide each one with a mentor, a summer/semester project, and weekly leadership seminars.

    Cons

    I was actually housed in a trailer because office facilities were being upgraded (which could be a pro since Dow Corning was updating it's buildings based on innovation).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in students and they will become great leaders in your company.

    I have been working at Dow Corning full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The employees are great as far as working as a team. The majority are very skilled and technical. Benfits are very good.

    Cons

    Upper Management (CEO AND CIO) does not communicate their direction and have destroyed the trust of the employees and the culture that was once Dow Cornings Shining Star. Dow Corning no longer values its people like they used to. The people used to the most important asset, now they are the most important liqued asset to reduce costs. It appears the direction is to go against current industry trends and outsource as opposed to internalize. As others have noted, if you know how to play the politics and are a "yes man" you can advance. Otherwise, you are gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take your misguided directions to another company.
