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

    Pros

    Professional work place. Practices Respect and Responsibility at most levels. Advancement opportunities depending on position. Would consider other opportunities with them. Great benefits for older employees grandfathered in, less for newer employees.

    Cons

    Too many processes, too much red tape to accomplish certain goals. Guess what one might expect with such a large company. Management prides themselves as a flat organization but still too many levels of managers. Tata Business Services, poor management idea.

    Advice to Management

    Farming out Supply Chain to Tata, NOT productive, lost a tremendous amount of knowledge in transition. But hey, they never knew it.


  2. "If the pay matched the culture it would be perfect"

    Cons

    The CEO has made several very bad decsions. The pay is good but not competitive in the Gulf Coast. The performance mangement process for degreed people causes some moral issues.

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to go
