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

    Pros

    It's an established company with top quality biotech equipment and facilities. They are very safety oriented and are mindful of their core values.

    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better transparency about company wide changes.
