      Lots of technical experts, wide ranging chemistry. Global opportunities. Good safety culture. Good work life balance. Far reaching technical career tracks.

      Heavy on image, procedures/workflows can be unwieldy. Executive communication seems insincere. Shortsighted focus on delivering shareholder value at expense of asset reliability

      Great Work Life Balance, Low Motivation

      Pros

      Dow is VERY family friendly, with 3 months of paternity and maternity leave (new policy in 2021), and really emphasizes work life balance. Dow also does a lot to teach engineers technically. I feel very advanced at my knowledge level for only 5 years of experience.

      Cons

      There continues to be a low level of motivation for me to work my butt off because you really don't get compensated much more for being fantastic.
