High in Safety and a very collaborative culture. Great benefits. The hiring process is of very high standards. Growth in certain functions is limited to geography.

I enjoyed my time at Dow. The management at the time was great to work for. The hardest part was being laid off and they just had given me more responsibility and asked to me to take on more before i was laid off. I would have loved to finish my career at Dow

They encourage workers to work safe and they provide the necessary action to achieve safety. They listen to workers suggestions and consider the once that make sense.

So sad. This was supposed to be my dream job. They laughed me out, made me do things I wasn't supposed to then left me to hold the bag when things went badly. Mostly the unqualified staffing coaches and managers that have no business managing humans just because they have an engineering degree.

Great place to work. The overall culture of the company is great. They do care about people development. Have been fairly treated over the years and recommend others as well.

Most of the employee in Dow are old timers and are with the company since ages. Some of them have no knowledge of the outside world and never try to make a new comers feel comfortable.

A culture that does not value shift workers and maintenance staff. These individuals are seen only as drones who have no input on day to day or long term decision making. The result of this culture is demoralizing. They claim to have an empowered workforce, this unfortunately was not my experience.

The company if very good culture and environment for working mom. I really enjoyed work with many professionals at my last job. And my manager was very hands off and allowed me a lot of professional freedom because I have a strong controllership mindset, work ethic and my job performance was exceptional.

Was on okay job, the only issue was that all the operators got their kids hired and then their kids got the promotions and it was impossible to move up if your family wasn't in the company. I saw a lot of good people get turned down for promotions, and simpletons would get it. But it paid well, and was safe.

Terrible workload and imbalance between work and personal life, no respect for employees and safety is only on paper not in practice, multitasking is a must there.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Long hrs, too much workload

Wonderful career until downsized in 2001 at the salary level of $85,000/year. Had window offices and I was very good at problem solving, follow up, and field sales interaction and support. Enjoyed the travel, the people, the work and would be still working there until now, had I not been downsized and company moved to Midland, Michigan.
Pros
Long term career and interesting work.
Cons
Downsized 2001

Very team focused, morale seemed high among workers. 12 hour rotating shifts were very popular with workers. Management was attentive to employees needs.

Supportive and team oriented company. Great work experience opportunity as a young adult. Learned a lot about the importance of plant site safety and the importance of encompassing safety in everything I do through out my day.
