Very Poorly Managed by Untrustworthy Leadership!
Former admin. (Former Employee) –  MichiganFebruary 1, 2017
If you are looking for a fair and ethical place of employment, do not waste your time with this posting. "Practice what you preach" does not apply here and an open door policy is not allowed or even practiced with this company as you are not able to voice your opinion without suffering negative consequences. They will take every bit of advantage of you that they can and call it your "challenge and privilege to be given the work load". The management is dishonest and double-faced. They will preach that family is number one, but it's not true...not for all employees. Beware!

The only pro's were the benefits offered.
Pros
Benefit package
Cons
Heinous and untrustworthy upper leadership team and people leaders

Dow Chemical is very safety oriantated and recognizes people for their hard work.
Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Wilmington, ILJanuary 26, 2017
The typical day starts with a short shift change meeting where a safety topic is reviewed. Also information about what products are being run for the shift. The management is supportive of the employees and will work with anyone that may have an issue. The workplace is fun but business like.
Pros
Overtime is readly available.
Cons
Some communication improvements needed between management and midnight shift.

Freelance Translator (Current Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCJanuary 22, 2017
I help with translating documents from Chinese to English, from newsletters to powerpoints. This is a part-time job for me, so some months I may not have anything to translate, and others I'll have a few at once. They don't usually take terribly long to finish, though.

Planner (Former Employee) –  North Andover, MAJanuary 5, 2017
I got a chance to learn a vast number of different skills during my many years at Dow.
The people were great and the vendors had a very good relationship with all of the purchasing staff.
Safety was high in the minds of all of the employees and we were told it was the first concern of management.

Excellent opportunity to excel, especially for non-degreed people. Relocated from a foreign assignment and no jobs were available, or I'd still be there.
