    I worked at Dow full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good products and scale. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Has lost its way. No longer a chemical company. Now acts like a social enterprise focused on everything other than chemistry and strong manufacturing excellence. CEO and management focused on social engineering - LGBT, diversity....all very nice but at the expense of being a great Chemical company. Doubt the Dow family would recognize what has become of their beloved company. Now its about flying rainbow flags or... solving third world problems or funding Olympics or marching for some cause.

    Advice to Management

    This is not an NGO. get back to the business of chemistry and being the best chemical manufacturer. Dump those managers who spend all their day time on LinkedIn promoting themselves.
