I worked at DuPont Pioneer as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

Very friendly and welcoming environment, weekly presentations, monthly potluck with exceptional bbq experts, mostly exceptional management and research team at the Hayward Facility.

Cons

the manager/"senior researcher" in Hayward Controlled environments (CE), lack of documented protocols in CE, lack of upward mobility at the Hayward facility.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spending 10 of millions on new greenhouses in Iowa shouldn't affect the hundreds of thousands spent on qualified workers in California. Facilities don't make great discoveries, minds do.
