Powerful Company, but Senior Leadership Has Attention Deficit Syndrome

I worked at Dow Chemical full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Huge technical capability. Large investment in new technology.

Cons

Senior leadership can't figure out what direction to take the company -- specialties, commodities, solar, globalization, energy, hydrocarbon-based polymers. It is the flavor of the quarter. This lack of direction and complete reliance on brainless work processes is damaging the growth prospects of this company. It can be a very frustrating place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out where the company should go, and stick with it for 5-10 years. The CEO is the prime example of lack of direction. His direction appears to be driven by personal aspirations and a political future.
