No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

People are exceptional
If you want flexibility start your own business or get with a smaller company. Both have associated risks of course.

Cons

Shareholders rule the board, who rule the management, who rule the worker; all in the name of upper mandate so they have no personal responsibility. That is the way it is with many corporations, detached from the worker.

Advice to Management

Take responsibility for your choices instead of acting powerless to do the right thing.

    I worked at Dow Chemical full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stability, job growth and advancement

    Cons

    salaries, bonuses, rewards are not based on performance

    Advice to Management

    Reward the top performers, don't give the non-performers the same pay raise as an employee that goes above and beyond the job scope.


  2. "Amazing people, great career development support, a place to stay long term."

    I worked at Dow Chemical as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation competitive to industry standard. Lots of opportunities to get in front of decision makers. Many opportunities to learn something new. Ideal work life balance...place is a ghost town at 530 and very few people slack during the day, so work gets done!

    Cons

    All roads lead to Midland if you are ambitious, which can be a con if you don't have a family.

    Advice to Management

    Consider easing the commute from Detroit to attract more talent. Perhaps a commuter bus.
