Project Manager (Current Employee), Texas City, TXNovember 23, 2014
Pros: great company, great people, excellent bonus
Cons: excessive travel and commute, advancement opportunities
Between the phone, email, and office visits, I get daily interuptions for problem solving ideas that allow the employees to continue to progress their work for this billion dollar industry. I am a Project Manager at Dow Chemical and enjoy touching the lives of my co-workers and project team members, from the quirky and quiet analysist to the outspoken – more... project engineer. The hardest part of my job is traveling for 3-4 weeks at a time. The most enjoyable part the job is the rush of having found a workable option that becomes a win-win solution. – less

Cutthroat, condescending place with constant scrutiny and internal competition
Chemical Process Engineer (Former Employee), Midland, MIOctober 8, 2014
Pros: high palying with unlimited resourses; large variety of technology
Cons: extremely competitive, arrogant, condescending, with job security only for a few; management dominated
High paying but completely lopsided expectations put on employees. Management believes they are kings. Company thinks they own you when you sign on with them, thus expect 50+ hour work weeks, extreme output (world class as they put it), a complete work focus with contempt given for outside interests, expectation of a Type 'A', alpha-male "leader" personality, – more... with contempt and a condescending attitude bordering on arrogance expressed towards other types. Forced ranking performance system with accelerated promotions given to 'gold' ones; with others being stagnated and eventually forced out. It is an 'up or out' system. No longer a place to work an entire career - just go there for 5 years or less to get the large company experience and then move on. The headquarters, Midland, MI is a rich, conservative, stuffy place completely centered around Dow. Do not go there for life balance, variety, individual expression, or anything else unrelated to Dow. – less
