    Good stable company, but no longer focused on chemistry

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood benefits and a positive overall culture. Good people that tend to try to do the right thing.

    ConsVery conservative. Recently changed focus away from chemistry toward Ag/Bio. This is a major shift for the company that may create major issues down the road.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Safety professional

    Safety Professional (Current Employee)
    Circleville, OH

    ProsSafety is "in front" of people. Daily, weekly, monthly and yearly reviews are held. Employees manage many safety committees and responsibilities.

    ConsBenefits are quickly going away. Pay is flat line at best. People feel disrespected and 'taken advantage' of each day. When management says" if you don't like it, leave" then harmony and trust are broken.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview what made this company great and go back to the core values of 50 years ago.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good run for 18 years.

    Research Scientist (Current Employee)
    Wilmington, DE

    ProsSalary, benefits, work-life balance, most people are good to work with.

    Great place to work if you work in agriculture and industrial biosciences.

    ConsPoor career development - one is on there own here, leadership does not help at all.

    Leadership quality is highly variable - the company does not do a good job of developing people with leadership potential.

    Slow decision making processes. This is due to a lack of empowerment at all levels. Too many people are involved in the decision processes and too much consensus is required to get to a decision.

    DuPont is in the process of transforming itself from a material science company into a agricultural/industrial biosciences based company. As such opportunities and job security for material scientists are becoming scarce.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on improving leadership quality, and empowering your employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Marketing Manager

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
    Richmond, VA

    ProsCompany is trying to move in a new direction to better position itself for future growth.

    ConsVery old company culture with outdated infrastructure, policies and practices that impede the kind of risk taking that successful companies tend to exhibit.
