    Pros

    Moved up the ladder at my own pace. Loved my co-workers and most bosses. Thought of myself as a lifer there!

    I, as many, were laid off. Unfortunately have heard quite a bit about the instability there. I would love to get a job there but am afraid of another layoff.

    Pros

    Benefits are good, people are friendly and quite helpful and work hours aren't too bad.

    Cons

    If you're a young engineer then you'll be surrounded by a lot of old timers who are really set in their ways. Also, the office building is straight up 35 years old and you can feel it!

    Advice to Management

    I know that the restructuring due to the Dow-DuPont merger is hitting everyone but try to hold it together guys.
