    Pros

    Talented people
    Diverse and interesting job opportunities
    Encourage personal growth and development
    Respectful work environment
    Competitive compensation and benefits
    Strong brand and reputation

    Cons

    Slow decision making - particularly with tough decisions
    Fuzzy accountabilities
    Vision of what the company should be was vague and abstract for too long
    Haven't created a new blockbuster business in a very long time

    Advice to Management

    The company is committed to a major shift away from legacy chemistry and polymer-based businesses toward a biology-based future. Management must decide how to continue in this direction while retaining top talent in their legacy businesses. Nobody at DuPont wants to work in a cash cow.
