    Current Employee - Senior Safety Consultant in Wilmington, DE
    Current Employee - Senior Safety Consultant in Wilmington, DE

    I have been working at DuPont full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good for people who want to hold on to their tiny turf and run politics day in and day out while waiting for retirement.

    Cons

    Ridden with politics
    No work or project gets done
    Core values are talked about but rarely implemented.
    "Respect for people" is a myth.
    Some where along the way, DuPont lost its safety and environmental excellence. Currently, the trend is to live off yester years legacy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on bringing the company up to speed with rest of the world. There is lot of stagnation and some facilities seem to be living in a time capsule.

    Current Employee - Senior Manufacturing Engineer

    I have been working at DuPont full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    *Large Company
    *Good Salary
    *Good relocation for current and new employees

    Cons

    *Over-the-top red tape and layers required to do anything
    *Safety culture is good, but at times can be over the top and lack common sense
    *Benefits not that great (and getting worse)
    *Remote sites that have little potential for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove management layers, implement safety policies with common sense, and reduce the premium creep on benefits over the last few years.

    I have been working at DuPont full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, good benefits, one of best 401k's, generally unstressful work environment. Serious on core values. Flexible work environment.

    Cons

    Company is reducing headcount again to meet short term goals, few people are exceptional- most are senior and stuck in their ways. Very boring sometimes. Company pays for professional accounting certification but does not understand their value. Future roles are disappearing due to roles being absorbed and future looks dim. Work load increases with no increase in pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on long term goals, stop favoring the shareholders so much as compared to the rest of employees.

    I have been working at DuPont full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    True to core values and business ethics, good perks but promotions not entirely performance based. Growth is entirely on individual and flexibility to move across functions and businesses. Require very good networking skills.

    Cons

    Employee growth is completely self responsibility, else good networking required. Managers are supreme power and hold everything with them. Staying for too long makes you practically useless to outside world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should consider focussing more on technical development and allocate some budget for same.

    I have been working at DuPont

    Pros

    Great educational opportunities at corporate level.

    Cons

    Former company was bought out by DuPont. When HR came to deliver everyone's "new" position and offer, the letter only had salary and title with absolutely no job description. This was the experience for 50+ people at the site. When I pressed management and HR for the need to include a description their only response was, "Just do what you've always done". Unfortunately, every contractor that came through the door kept asking where are all the other people to support your job, there should be four or more of you to cover the plant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire seasoned people and pay them a living wage. Moreover, hire enough people to cover the ups-and-downs that are inevitable in a working plant. Otherwise, you force your "salaried" employees to work 60+ hours ever week for years on end. This results in low morale and destruction of their sanity and home life. If you do hire someone who is green, spend the time and money to properly train them.
