    I worked at Dow Chemical full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities if you apply yourself. The pay and benefits are good. Safety is a high priority. The culture in most plants is comfortable.

    Cons

    Most of the large locations in the US and their headquarters location, are not places you would prefer to live (Midland, MI; Freeport, TX, etc.). There are too many "Global Leader" level people, and most have no business being there. Majority of employees have no confidence in the CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Dow is not going to change significantly until they have a new CEO. There needs to be more thinning out of all the "Global Leader" positions, and it needs to be done in an apolitical way.

    I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time (More than 3 years)

    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"!
