    Pros

    Great employees and team to work with. The environment can challenge you and it is an interesting position to gain concepts of production

    Cons

    Sometimes as co-ops there is not a whole ton of work unless you ask for it so at times it can get boring.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication

    I worked at Dow Corning (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lot's of mobility and opportunity. No shortage of roles in operations if that is a career path you are interested in.

    Cons

    Operations are exhausting jobs for the pay, compared to engineering and capital group. Less technical experience in supervisor roles than some places I've worked.

    Advice to Management

    Need better work/life balance for the people in operational roles. Less technical experience in supervisor roles than some places I've worked.


  9. "Overall experience"

    Pros

    A great place to work. Very supportive, team-centered environment with great management.

    Cons

    Company was acquired. Although there were some understandable culture changes, the culture at my level remained essentially unchanged...and favorable.

    Advice to Management

    None. Continue to deliver the same great support to your employees.
