I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Depends on the department, but there is a general tendency to emphasize respect and doing the right thing. It is emphasized especially by the current CEO.

Cons

Work processes set up to drive the right behavior for the existing business acts as a terrible bureaucratic barrier for innovation and pursuit of new markets.

Advice to Management

Improve cross-functional cooperation to act on new opportunities in the market.

    Pros

    Commitment to improve EHS performance. High ethical standards. Compensation seems to be strong in the industry. A lot of ways to direct a career due to large scope and scale of businesses.

    Cons

    There are some geographical limitations and need to be where the facilities are for most potential career growth (MI, TX, PA), otherwise need to relocate for advancement. Going through a lot of change due to ROH acquisition leads to ambiguity and lack of direction from Sr. Management.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the little people as the integration unfolds. Commmunication on high level objectives is critical for success at the day to day level
