    Pros

    Dow really encourages you to learn more about your job and challenges you in a positive way to improve or explore other projects within the company.Everyone gets to participate in matters of safety or finding new ways to increase quality.

    Cons

    I wish that senior management would come to production floor more often during the night shifts.On the occasion when one does take the time to do so i find that it motivates everyone just to have a minute or so conversation.You can feel a little fogotten on 3rd shift.It seems like first shift gets all the attention sometimes.

    Pros

    -Competitive salary
    -Great corperate strategy
    -Work with some of the best and brightest in the industry
    -Very open and communicative corperate culture. Great communication at all levels.
    -Safety. Dow has one of the best safety programs in the industry with process safety pemployees involved in a wide range of international consortiums etc.

    Cons

    -Performance review methodology causes significant angst amongst employees. Forces people into a ranked system with capped quantities of employees allowed in each rank. Quite subjective and depending on how good of a leader you have, could result in questionable rankings.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the performance review methodology. It is universally disliked and not well understood by the significant majority of employees.
