    I worked at Dow full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balanced culture. The work environment is very professional and managers here really know how to manage their resources.

    Cons

    The area (headquarters @ Midland, MI) is a great area but can be a bit too quiet for younger single people. With that said, Midland is close to many great cities for weekend trips. Also, if you have a significant other and or kids, it is a great town to live in.

    Advice to Management

    None, my experience with Dow management was excellent. Managers at here do their best to put you through training and to get you certifications in order for you to do your job well. They also have a team mentality and do their best to pull you up and get you to your goals.
