    I worked at DuPont as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Worked with the best team. People were super nice and well coming and very open minded. They all also have an open door policy

    Cons

    It is the middle of the summer so it might be hard to motivate yourself to go to the plant in protective gear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To continue what is going on in the plant. Although the process is not perfect, definitely continue to employ people like the ones I worked with

    I have been working at DuPont as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    One of the main focuses are not only making a profit and meeting goals, but respecting each other and creating a positive work environment. Interns get very competitive pay. Engineers seem to have a great work-life balance here, no crazy hours.

    Cons

    Interns do not get involved in meatier projects, which is unfortunate. Possibly because of security of information, or believing that interns cannot handle more? I don't know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interns are only a few classes shy of being qualified engineers, please don't be afraid to give them some responsibility.

    I have been working at DuPont as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    It is a great place to work and everyone is extremely nice. I have had many great opportunities presented to me, and they are hiring young people.

    Cons

    Most of the work revolves around science (it is a science company), so if you really do not like science then you may not be interested.

    Pros

    Companies does the max for your development; values diversity and strong innovation leadership.

    Cons

    Company pushing you constantly to deliver your potential. Makes the most for your development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At critical times, workload still in the shoulders of a few, who deliver. Raising the bar needs to continue to get rid of below required performers.
