      Pros

      Dow takes safety seriously. It impresses me how much they focus on requiring their employees to do work safely. They also put a large dose of responsibility and trust in their engineers to do what they think best in various situations. They'll give you plenty of rope if you ask for it. Also, most managers were already reasonable about your vacation requests. After Covid, they seem to be even more flexible if you book around big deliveries.

      Cons

      The corporate organization is wierd at best. Often times managers will preside over groups working on tasks completely outside their wheelhouse. They know little about the groups efforts and it's more of a chore and therefore don't go to bat hard enough for that group.
