    Pros

    Work/Life balance, good compensation/benefits and reasonable management and HR leadership in place!

    Cons

    Too much politics and you must be working some years before considering you to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Let's focus on capabilities and deliverables, rather than years of work and political "friendship"!

    I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good balance of work and life in general
    Opportunities to learn different skills
    A lot of resources at your disposal, if you know how to access them.
    Everyone has heard of your company, which saves some explaining to relatives
    People are generally tolerant of timelines slipping

    Cons

    Slowing moving, stuck in a commodity chemical mindset.
    Rigidly compliant to set processes.
    Inpersonal, you have a problem? email a nameless email address and hope for a reply.
    Dependence on contractors makes routine functions unpredictable, it can take months to get bills paid.
    Constant layoffs and downsizing has made the morale of the work force dismal.
    Innovation is a buzz word rather than a core value.
    The company is more about managers playing politics, kick down kiss up will get you far.

    Advice to Management

    Stop behaving is such a clearly hypocritical manor, like writing a book about jobs in America then shipping them to Korea, or claiming Dow doesn't fire scientists while you are in the midst of firing scientists.
