I worked at Rohm and Haas as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Good location. Close to mass transit. Interesting work.

Cons

The merger with Dow Co was not publicised and led to many fulltimers to jump ship.

Advice to Management

None.

    Pros

    Although Rohm and Hass is now Dow Chemical, it was the greatest company to work for in way of how they treated their people. They appreciated the work you done and always let you know. They give you a sense of pride working for them. They also cared about your safety and your balance for work and home life. Rohm and Haas was good to me for 30yrs. How many people in today's world can say they really enjoy going to work every day? I did!

    Cons

    The only down side for Rohm and Haas I can think of is when they sold out to Dow Chemical. It was no longer a people place. No matter what you done it was never enough. They push their people to a breaking point.

    Advice to Management

    Good people are retiring due the the low morale. Get the plants back to the way it was under Rohm and Haas. I would have stayed more then 30yrs. if it were still R & H.

    Pros

    Company was a good place to work when it was still R&H. Fair to employees and many bright and dedicated co-workers.

    Cons

    Left when the company was bought out by Dow. Friends who remain do not seem quite as positive about how they are being treated by Dow.

    Advice to Management

    Former R&H workers who remain after the take over should be valued by new management. After a period of adjustment, they will make valuable contributions to the success of Dow.
