No opinion of CEO

I worked at Dow Chemical full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I was treated fairly, with respect and dignity. Various opportunities were given to show my skills and compentencies. Overall, great people to work for.

Cons

Location of being about 50 miles away from any major metropolitan city is a negative to keeping good talent.

Advice to Management

Be more open in communication to people in plants. Do not strong arm employees families when they voice their opinions on your operations

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary is good considering how low the cost of living is. Flexible work arrangements. Work / life balance is pretty good. When there aren't budget cuts, there tends to be money for projects.

    Cons

    The performance management system (forced ranking) is terrible: it punishes people randomly. Management is weak. Career advancement is spotty. Marketing support is spotty. Midland is a very conservative town, with very little to do... especially bad for single people.
