    I worked at DuPont

    Pros

    Very laid back atmosphere. On-site engineering contractor does most of the engineering work.

    Cons

    Didnt feel challenged. It was very easy to get away with not doign very much. People at the site are very comfortable/lazy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push your people to identify cost savings. Enrich development with off-site training/Vendor training.

    I worked at DuPont full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Safety first, great people, pay, bonuses, recognition rewards, training/development opportunities, tuition reimbursement program, personal development, holidays, vacation, great culture, travel, global teams

    Cons

    As with any huge corporation, change can take time and resources. Also, some employees are 3rd generation (DuPont is over 200 years olds!) and have a sense of entitlement because their parents and grandparents had it much better...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose touch with the employees in the field and plant sites. Resist the urge to be short sighted (quarterly stock returns v long term life/health of corporation).

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

    Pros

    Good camaraderie at my site. A lot of learning opportunities are presented though there isn't always time to fit them in. I believe in the science I'm doing. Recognition awards for employees who go out of their way to help someone out.

    Cons

    Easy to feel disconnected from the big picture in such a large organization. Too much bureaucracy. I feel like the core values are just paid lip service to but ignored for profits. Health benefits in the past few years have gotten significantly worse. Feels stuck in an old corporate mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have better lines of communication, especially during turbulent times such as the spin of of Chemours.

    I worked at DuPont full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you like the relative stability of large companies, DuPont is a good one. There is still a sense of community and values in the company, which also means that a fair number of good people work there.

    Cons

    All the drawbacks of large, publicly held companies apply to DuPont as well. It can be very slow / bureaucratic and higher levels of management are not necessarily the best people to work with or for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't give in to the idiots on Wall Street who will destroy everything the company stands for, including what makes it valuable.
