    J'ai travaillé chez Dow Corning à plus de 10 ans

    Avantages

    Lot's of mobility and opportunity. No shortage of roles in operations if that is a career path you are interested in.

    Inconvénients

    Operations are exhausting jobs for the pay, compared to engineering and capital group. Less technical experience in supervisor roles than some places I've worked.

    Conseils à la direction

    Need better work/life balance for the people in operational roles. Less technical experience in supervisor roles than some places I've worked.

    Je travaille chez Dow Corning à temps plein

    Avantages

    Pro's are mostly gone. Benefits and vacation used to be top notch, especially for younger folks. Now on Dow's system, without the pay raises.

    Inconvénients

    Inability to develop younger talent. Little to no effective training. Younger engineers are expected to sink or swim and are not really given mentor-ship or leadership. You will have to mope around the plant trying to scrounge up your own projects before finally getting assigned a process. You'll mostly fail, because plant engineers are to overworked to try to help you out. Once you get that process, you'll drown... in nonsense for months until you finally barely figure it out due to a lack of documentation and experience. opportunities for advancement did not really exist before the merger, after is hard to say. 9/80's now gone as well.

    Conseils à la direction

    Actually utilize younger talent. Don't hire people just to sit around

    Great collaborative atmosphere, very friendly, many opportunities to learn.

    Frequent business reorganization, sometimes making it feel like going in circles.

    Conseils à la direction

    Difficult to tell, with current management changing over to Dow Chemical structure.

    Employé actuel - Manufacturing Engineer à Barry, Pays de Galles

    Je travaille chez Dow Corning à temps plein depuis plus de 10 ans

    Avantages

    Chances to move to other roles and gain good broad chemical experience. great people working there. Good benefits. One of the few remaining chemical manufacturers inSouth Wales

    Inconvénients

    May not be the same with Dow as new owner as jobs roles are more " pure" and benefits may be changed from Jan 2017

    Conseils à la direction

    Look after the people in these changing times

    Je travaille chez Dow Corning à temps plein depuis plus de 3 ans

    Avantages

    Good pay and good bonus's for projects, also incentive sharing is also a plus, although you never get close to the maximum payout possible.

    Inconvénients

    very fast high pressure working conditions in IT, weekends and night work is pretty much a requirement, its very difficult to have a life outside of work here. Management also runs much like a company from the 50's or 60's where if you are not physically in your office, then you are not getting anything accomplished in their eyes which is simply very far from the truth in the world of IT.

    Conseils à la direction

    Be more accommodating to employees and you might have a better recruiting base to pull from and more folks willing to relocate to the very dull, non diverse tri-city area.

    Manufacturing Engineer à Carrollton, KY

    Point de vue neutre
    N'approuve pas le PDG

    Je travaille chez Dow Corning à depuis plus de 5 ans

    Avantages

    The people are the best you will find--everyone genuinely wants to help make the plant as successful and profitable as possible. Flexible work weeks also offer an advantage not always available, with every other Friday off.

    Inconvénients

    LOCATION! For most, Carrollton, KY is not a desirable place to live. This means you will be commuting quite a way to work. If you like a larger city and/or have a career spouse, that commute will likely be in excess of 45 minutes each way--a big hit to the work/life balance provided by the flexible work week. The opportunities in Carrollton are also somewhat limited--if you are willing to move out of the area... there are many opportunities (and growing with shifts in the chemical industry and corporate structure). If you're not willing to move away from the area, expect to spend a lot of time in every role and wondering what you may be able to do next.

    Pas d'avis sur le PDG

    J'ai travaillé chez Dow Corning à temps plein plus d'un an

    Avantages

    Interesting work opportunities. Diverse mix of projects. Top notch safety and security measures. great employee discounts on major brand items.

    Inconvénients

    No training. No help on how to fit in. Most long-term employees have known each other since kindergarten. Newcomers can feel very much like outsiders. Some "we always did it this way" mentality.

    Conseils à la direction

    You can't expect new employees to magically understand what it is you want. Interviewing for a specific project with specific goals can help, but if you choose not to do this, don't just have new people show up and then make them fend for themselves - guessing if their work is meeting expectations and providing no meaningful feedback if it is requested.

    Avantages

    Not many. Can't say too much on the company except you get good vacation and benefits.

    Inconvénients

    Long hours, poor leadership, big egos, isolated locations, no accountability for managers. Most recently the biggest level of concern is getting notification that a contractor working for the company took personal information including social security, birth date, address, etc. for all employees. Have to set up a fraud monitoring with an outside party to ensure you are protected. Is this for real that a contractor... has access to all this employee information????? No surprise based on all the contractors and co-employment issues with the company.

    Dérouler

    Conseils à la direction

    You need to reevaluate the entire company strategy and who is running the direction of the future.

    Corporate strategy swings between extremes in a short time span Constant change of organization/people makes it hard to get things done, also screws up any career planning Innovation process is a mess

    Find a plan and then stick to it long enough to see if its working
