Dow Chemical is a great company to work for. Does not micromanage, transparent--especially for such a large company, and truly cares about how their employees work and live. Great salaries and benefits.

Nothing in particular comes to mind. Great place!

    I worked at Dow Chemical as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    I did 3 co-op terms with Dow. All of them in different locations, and different job roles. I was pleased with my experiences, and have learned a lot during my time with them. Some of the pros:
    - Company Culture
    - Large number of different opportunities both in US and globally, many possible career paths
    - People I worked with were good
    - Big on safety
    - Large variety of products and business segments

    Cons

    I did not accept an offer with them, because following my co-op experiences although expressing to them what my interests were, I felt I was offered a generic position doing a line of work i wasn't interested in. Other companies listened more to what my interests were, and offered more competitive offers doing more exciting work. Some cons:
    - Didn't listen to my interests
    - Locations (for young professionals they aren't exciting places)
    - Short term vision by executive management, making promises that can't be kept (leads to feeling of instability after every bad quarter)

    Advice to Management

    Switch to long term outlook, don't make promises to investors that can't be met. Focus on fulfilling new plants and improvement projects, and long term strategy will pay off. Dow has a great variety of interesting products coming down the line, with a lot of creative innovation, needs to focus on delivering those rather than cutting costs.

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

    Pros

    large multinational company with opportunities to progress upwards and laterally in many different roles. Good reputation as chemical manufacturing employer

    Cons

    intangibles can be more important than tangibles in rating of employees performance. HR dept is supporter of management and not employees
