    GREAT company culture

    Manufacturing Technology Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsOne 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.

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

    Procurement Operations

    Procurement Operations (Current Employee) Hyderābād (India)

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

    ConsConfined 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.

    It has been great.

    Business Process Specialist (Current Employee) Wilmington, DE

    ProsIt 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.

    ConsMost 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.

    DuPont MBA Summer Internship

    Summer Intern (Former Employee) Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

    ProsA 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementOverall I am satisfied with the management style.

    Great company to work and stay with

    Global Finance Manager (Current Employee) Wilmington, DE

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

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