    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.

    Pros

    Amazing facilities, very good Transport option- both pick and drop from home. Very good location with all possible amenities provided to employees.

    Cons

    Confined to only one shift. But spread out for various time zones. Hopefully make it a global support centre all of them working for a european or indian timings would be preferable.

    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.

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

    Pros

    A well-designed LDP internship. Managers and mentors are very supportive. The internal consulting/marketing based projects are well defined and require your MBA level knowledge, thinking, and communication skills to solve business challenges.

    Cons

    The program is very competitive, so if you want to succeed, you really need to put a lot of efforts on the projects. Though it is challenging, the experiences are very rewarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall I am satisfied with the management style.
