I have been working at Dow full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Large Company, lots of opportunities, constant ability to meet people in different functions/geographies

Cons

Very siloed org, if you don't actively reach out to other groups, you can get stuck. Management visibility can be difficult. Goal setting/reviews are very arbitrary and can be not valuable to employees.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to turn Dow into Apple. The commodities have been the saving grace repeatedly and Dow managers are still trying to get away from the commodities.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Huge technical capability. Large investment in new technology.

    Cons

    Senior leadership can't figure out what direction to take the company -- specialties, commodities, solar, globalization, energy, hydrocarbon-based polymers. It is the flavor of the quarter. This lack of direction and complete reliance on brainless work processes is damaging the growth prospects of this company. It can be a very frustrating place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out where the company should go, and stick with it for 5-10 years. The CEO is the prime example of lack of direction. His direction appears to be driven by personal aspirations and a political future.
