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

Pros

Wages are higher; benefits decent.

Cons

Lots of layoffs, experienced downsizing every four years during my career. Advancing in career depends more on who you know than what you do.

Advice to Management

Practice what you preach. Employers should be your most important asset and my advice is to do a better job to make the employees feel valued. Try to find a way to avoid so many downsizings. It hurts hiring and ruins reputations.

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

    Dow relocates every intern in new, furnished apartments at a very cheap daily charge.

    There's not that much to do in Midland, but still a nice town.

    More traveling opportunities for interns to different plants.

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

    Pros

    Willing to listen to ideas - the management I have worked with have been fair and inclusive with an open door policy.

    Cons

    Grading system on a bell curve can be challenging because somebody has to be graded at the bottom and somebody at the top. Even if the actual performance diffferences are small or arbitary.

    Advice to Management

    Consider an alternative way of grading performance rather than a 'forced' bell-curve.
