Thread regarding Dow Chemical Co. layoffs

we have not been given any information internally about layoffs at dow

employees are also reading the online news feeds daily to find out. i am more likely to read about layoffs on the web than from an internal source, that's the way dow operates. they operate in the dark with employees, mushroom theory style. personally opinion: if this is a merger of 'equals' (debatable because the math just doesn't work out in my mind, dow is definitely the bigger $$$ company) and dupont lays off 10% of their workforce to make this deal happen then we should expect no less at dow. certainly two accounting groups, two legal departments, two safety depts, two HR depts, etc cannot be left to service the joined company. I'm sure they will justify laying off one of each of these. Then after the 3 companies are constructed they will hire at entry level wages to repopulate these again. research it's hard to decide where to cut. but dow was making cutbacks in 4Q2015 and it was obvious from services. there was no hand soap in the rest rooms or kitchens, office trash was being emptied twice a week max (never dump your lunch in your office trash can ! ), the holiday site wide 'office party' was on site lunch at the cafeteria and all i saw was lasagna, green beans and soda. I looked and I left. sadness is happening at dow too. we know we'll be layed off too, just haven't had the formality of being told (i.e. respect).

Layoffs are coming soon. Look at Dow and DuPont stock, they can't do nothing! I work at Dow Corning and can see the writing on the wall.
