    Pros

    I made connections at Dow that lead to an offer before 2 years, but this is typically not the case, as some people have been here for 6+ years.
    Work hard and you will get treated and rewarded appropriately

    Cons

    No more snacks
    Digital department's responsibilities ares depreciating to little more than content support
    raises are now only 2% annually rather than performance based

    Pros

    Throughout the year the company always had several types of team building activities and they're tons of fun! They also had a really nice Christmas party and a really cool Halloween department decorative competition. Overall it's just a great place to work.

    I would say benefits but before I moved they really vamped up their benefit package so hats off to them.
