Pros

The best reason I believe to work at Dow Chemical is the true global reach of this company. Where many other companies have some reach abroad, Dow is truly growing its international reach and includes opportunities to travel even at a low level

Cons

It is at the end of the day a chemical company. Many of the processes have a steeper learning curve as chemistry must be understood in some cases to understand the business operations.

    -Very open and communicative corperate culture. Great communication at all levels.
    -Safety. Dow has one of the best safety programs in the industry with process safety pemployees involved in a wide range of international consortiums etc.

    Cons

    -Performance review methodology causes significant angst amongst employees. Forces people into a ranked system with capped quantities of employees allowed in each rank. Quite subjective and depending on how good of a leader you have, could result in questionable rankings.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the performance review methodology. It is universally disliked and not well understood by the significant majority of employees.

    Pros

    close to home, the pay, benefits, those that I work with we are like family. For that I am blessed.

    Cons

    it's a Chemical Plant, the fighting among different groups, the disrespect and bulling that goes on.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to actually meet Andrew Liveris. Management needs to do more for the "little guy". Instead of hiding out in the Corporate Office they need to actually meet the blue collar worker.
