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

    May 3, 2022 - Principal Investigator in Wilmington, DE
    Recommend
    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.
