    I worked at DuPont as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent company. They have a unique culture and are very proud of their history. Core values are of utmost importance and are carried out on a daily basis. Worked with many great people. Everyone was more than willing to help me out and teach me the ropes.

    Cons

    The company makes it seem like there are ample opportunities to gain employment after internship, however the amount of positions they have available is very limited. Additionally they are in the process of reorganizing the company so it was very hectic scheduling meetings.

    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 (less than an 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.
