      Cons

      1. Getting job opportunity in this company is not easy 2. New joiners should be patient enough and sharp enough to learn the company culture and work processes.

      Production Engineer

      Sep 8, 2017 - Run Plant Engineer in Charleston, WV
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The people at Dow are the best thing about the company. The employees (operators and staff) take pride in their work and their sense of ownership really drives a positive and safe environment that makes working there fun and productive.

      Cons

      Some of the work processes need to be revised/edited based on specific chemistries, businesses, etc. Dow tries to streamline work processes that don't necessarily fit best/aren't most effective for every plant/site/etc.

      Former Employee, more than 5 years

      All in all, it's a pretty decent place to work...

      Jun 4, 2017 - Operator in Texas City, TX
      Recommend

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Management and leadership can be rather laid back at times.

      Cons

      Some of the work processes (rules, standards, communications) cause the operators to have to deal with unnecessary "work-arounds" and "work-throughs". In many cases, the operators are expected to "do more" with "less".

      Engineer

      Jan 11, 2017 - Anonymous Employee 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval

      Pros

      There are many programs to help you network, find mentors, and make connections throughout the company in order to boost personal growth. Heavy emphasis on safety. Good benefits and vacation policy.

      Cons

      Very strict work processes can be limiting as far as your ability to contribute to activities and projects. Going through a merger, so lots of change and extreme actions being taken for cost savings. Work-life balance is intense more often than not.
