Process Engineering Specialist (Former Employee) – Freeport, TX – February 19, 2017
Had the opportunities to work in multiple functions of the petrochemical industry from manufacturing to technical services and Process Engineering. Company has a strong focus on safety and technical training.
It was a very good place to work and it was very close to my home. Traffic is a big factor and I was able to work flexible hours to work around the traffic. I had a great piping lead that was very understanding, would definitely work for him again,

Work Coordinator (Current Employee) – Freeport, TX – July 11, 2016
working here is always a challenge with new thing that come up on a day to day. I have learned to use SAP to complete all of my jobs. The management here is wonderful to work for along with all of my co-workers. This job is not that hard just takes time and to be able to go home knowing that I have given my all to complete all my jobs by the due date.
I had over 30 years of satisfying IT career with the company. While positions in Manufacturing and Research continue to be world class, IT roles have been reduced due to waves of outsourcing. IT Management roles; developing strategy and oversight of service providers, are few and well sought-after.
Competitive salary and compensation; emphasis on growth
Lead Improvement Manager PU Packaging Adhesives (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 6, 2015
A place where you can develop yourself and support others to achieve required performance level. I loved to have a global reach with different cultures and establishing connections inside and outside the business. The company offers a great package of benefits. People changes and politics have a big impact in the operation and challenge the organization.
Environmental Health & Safety Tech (Former Employee) – Freeport, TX – September 14, 2015
A good place to work if you can keep your job. Good work performance reviews and work ethics is no guarantee of employment. I was acquired through an acquisition. I was never told my work quality or quantity was lacking. Always had good performance reviews but was told no longer a part of the new organization when I turned 52. Dow's business model is to perform a 10% purge every three years or so.

Production Technician (Current Employee) – Dow – September 18, 2012
Unless you are desperate for a job, dont work at Prentiss. Management will grind down your moral so low that when you are driving to work you think about switching lanes and hitting one of the semis head on.. Its that bad. Bonus's are a performance award, (which if you do nothing wrong even send an email that can be perceived badly will be near zero) pay is good for a 4th class plant in central Alberta, but dont ever ask for a raise. They do send you on cool training trips to the states and such, but when you get back they scrutinize every receipt you have like you stole from them.
All in all, if you get a call to come work, dont even waste your time driving to the security shack and have yourself a beer instead
trips on company dime, decent pay, good crews
retards get promoted and paid better than you will, management plays favourites, they will do what they can to make you not want to come through the gate
Senior Project Leader/ Energy Consultant (Current Employee) – Europe and Saudi Arabia – November 2, 2015
Enjoyed working with the company. Good people around and had lot of fun. Very cooperative and understanding. No discrimination and lot of opportunities for growth and development. It was full of challenges as I was involved in different project engineering and implementation
I love working for Dow. The atmosphere and culture of the business is an environment that provides learning for all who work there. They also are knowledgeable of the importance of a work/ life balance. This makes it a great place to work.
Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee) – Texas City, TX – August 7, 2016
Through Dow I was able to get extensive training, work on massive projects, work with highly capable people, and get pushed to my limit. The hardest part involved being fully tied to equipment. If there was a failure then it is my job to be there to ensure that it gets up and running again. I greatly enjoy working with such skilled people who are so willing to help.
Worker (Current Employee) – Midland, TX – July 4, 2016
Do not report any issue with your supervisor. HR is not your friend. You will be moved and fired eventually. Claiming no position is available for you. Supervisor will black ball you so that no one else will want to hire you. Nothing you can do about a negative Performance Review even if it is untrue.
