i worked for Acuren Inspections as a subcontractor to DOW.
Was an excellent work experience. Had I had more experience I would have chosen to stay there and retire. Would go back in a heartbeat. DOW employees were excellent to work with.
Pros
Team-building, variation of work duties, opportunity to learn

Great work-life balance but too much red tape.
Dow is a great place to work overall. Many people have been working at the company for over 20 years due to the work life balance. The company has a lot of red tape though when it comes to processes. It is understandable that safety should be a priority, but a lot of processes slow down work and leave people frustrated and confused. Dow could also do a better job in career advancement and opportunities for the entry level staff.
Pros
Work Life Balance, supportive management, Safety emphasis
Cons
Confusing processes, small budgets

Co Workers are not your friends
I was wrongfully terminated by a racist manager. I passed everything in order to be done as a trainee only to be terminated a week later because of overall performance which really didn't make sense. Mind you we were short staffed and going into the turnaround. It was so unfair that the unemployment commission are paying me benefits because they can't see where I was fired due to work misconduct.

Learned a lot
Moving carrot, each year told what was important but at review time it was always something else that I should have done. Management uses peers against you to get what they want. Overworked with no real support, just a lot of handwaving and head nods. The pay and insurance was good and competitive.

Employee expierence will vary
Schedule leaves a lot to be desired. Management experience will vary with department. Morale is generally pretty low. Pay is some of the best in the area depending upon department

The work life balance is not that good in some roles and some managers do not recognize their teams contributions and don't care
Overall, it was great to work for Dow. I enjoyed my job and peers and had a couple managers who recognized my value and contributions to the company. Two managers were more about their advancement and felt all employees should be at their level and rated based on that instead of what the employees did and how they managed their role.

Great place to work, but new management is questionable.
I worked for The Dow Chemical Co for close to 21 years, reaching the top of my field. I was abruptly terminated recently and the new management style is the cause in my opinion. There is a disconnect currently between management and the work force.

Good group of people to work with
For the most part my experience was good. People I worked with were friendly and for the most part all got along well. The work was challenging and the company seems to care for their workers. I would have stayed if I had not transferred to an environment with management that created a toxic work environment. Dow offers a lot of incentive to work for them and if given the opportunity to work for better management I would have tried to stay. I would work for the company again, just not for certain individuals in the company.

Workplace inclusion
From day one I felt more included in the workplace than I had at most of my previous employers. It is clear that your voice matters and is heard above all else.
