Good company to work for, with opportunities to advance, and has a good work life balance program
Project Manager (Former Employee), Midland MIApril 29, 2014
Pros: on site cafe', on site fitness center
Cons: badging in and out of the place. it's like fort knox!
When you make the move from hourly to salary and are exempt, then your work life changes. You're not tied to the desk for certain hours of the day, but expected to get the job done no matter when you work on it. You will learn a lot about safety in this company!

The hardest part of this job is trying to stay out of the corporate politics, because this – more... is where the "tell it like it is" guys like me are too rough around the edges.

The most enjoyable part of my career here has been the opportunity to help so many people achieve their goals and help customers accomplish theirs with my support. It always feels good to help out your customers. – less

Excellent company to work for but diminished culture.
Real Estate and Facility Management support staff (Former Employee), Auburn, MIOctober 11, 2013
Pros: excellent colleagues, employee benefits, and career development opportunities.
Cons: uncertainty
Dow Corning is an anchor company of mid-Michigan. The corporation has premium offerings for customers, business partners, and suppliers.......most of all it's new-found service providers. There is much uncertainty in this company as they pursue a leadership-driven lean cost structure. Enterprise leadership continues to recruit external staff to lead – more... outsourcing initiatives known as 'service excellence.' It begs a question of whether the million dollar planning consultants for service excellence are really worth it. All the money spent to plan and implement service excellence must surely wash out its cost savings. – less

Cons: susceptible to market commodity and specialty chemical market ups and downs
The best thing about my job is not only do I work for a world class organization, but the people are the most supportive and energizing I've ever come across in over 25 yrs working in this field and others. It is a promote from within bottom up and top down synergistic environment that not only promotes the individual, but also the team.

Overestimates by high-level managers have steered the company into an iceberg.
