    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.
