    Short Term Financial Focus - No Longer a Science-Driven Company

    May 3, 2022 - Principal Investigator in Wilmington, DE

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Great brands and market recognition. - Generally talented people and teams on the technical side. - Good support and hybrid work for established employees, but more difficult for new employees to get connected. - Unique and interesting technologies spread across different units.

    Cons

    - In product development, lots of business/technology silos due to constant divestitures/acquisitions to please shareholders since 2017 Dow merger/split. This lowers stability and trust, leads to collaboration difficulties, and increases barriers to market wins. - Upper management have little technical literacy and therefore capacity to integrate R&D to create value for end customers. "Strategy" consist of segmenting units by short term financial metrics and backward looking consultant decks, rather than in dept understanding of end market or technology fit for sustainable long term growth. - Constant reorganization- rounds of cutbacks, M+A synergies and integration (layoffs)- provided ample opportunity to self-promoting bean counters to entrench across middle management by parroting upper management talking points and/or leaning in on DEI.

    Pros

    You'll feel extremely well taken care of from the get-go. The teams are fantastic. Everyone is extremely competent and the science is interesting.

    Cons

    Their yearly pay raise has failed to match or beat inflation for multiple years. Effectively, many have received a pay cut within the company despite record profits. Their reasoning is that their policy is to have "merit-based" raises which is a very corporate and detached method given the current (and now long-spanning) economic climate. They are great to work for, but will likely experience turnover for the above reason as time goes on unless they implement new compensation policies.

    Pros

    Engineers at dupont are given responsibility early, and trusted with decisions. Jobs are also steady, in the sense that people are rarely fired. Industry is sturdy and not going away any time soon.

    Cons

    Company makes constant attempt at restructuring for efficiency, and this means nobody's job title or responsibilities stay constand for very long.
