Dow layoffs 2023

I just thought I’d talk about DOW and its current layoff situation. As big as a corporation as DOW is I really thought they would have a more tasteful manner of laying people off, as I got my notice yesterday. Your leader schedules a 1 on 1 meeting... —  read more

A word of caution

Don't rely on what you are told will be your job during your interview. I went in expecting one thing and I was greeted with something completely different. I could deal with being given additional responsibilities, but I was expected to do things I... —  read more

Laid Off 2020

I was exposed to a chemical while on the job and then after it was apparent that I was having some medical issues due to the exposure I was let go. All of my attempts to get in contact with Dow HR services have been silenced and ignored. I've already... —  read more

Running the company through fear

Management at Dow is among the worst I've ever had the (dis)pleasure of working for. They think that the best approach to running a company is through fear. Instead of encouraging people to do their best work they rely on threats and what pretty much... —  read more

Constant layoffs

I understand the company is simply doing all it can to survive, but the constant mergers and divestitures have removed even a semblance of job security. There's no need to wonder if there will be new layoffs when we know next consolidation is right... —  read more
