    Pros

    They have decent pay. There are good people to work with. On site cafe. Nice walking trail. Very easy job to do.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for employee growth. Poor break policy. Say they care about employees, but it seems they don't. Constant downsizing. They care more about the "appearance" of safety, not true safety.

    Advice to Management

    Work with hourly employees prior to making blanket policy changes that effect everyone. Get the person on the floors input for ideas. Really care about safety.

    I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities to try different things. The work is always different. There's never a dull moment, everyone is always busy. There are opportunities for travel and when times are good, opportunities for international travel. Overall, the company cares about it's employees and wants to keep you long-term. There are a lot of people at Dow that really care about one another.

    Cons

    The culture seems to have a lack of communication. It's not always easy to find the "right" answer or the "right" person. It also seems that there is more support, training, and attention for "advanced" people or those who are might be people leaders and less for those who don't.

    Advice to Management

    Find new ways of communication and getting employees access to better collaborate with one another.
