Pros

history of innovative products, good benefits, dedicated workforce - many of whom want to do more but find it challenging with lack of resources.

Cons

top heavy - leadership keep their jobs while the 'worker bees' are cut. Needs leaders with vision - not more managers. safety has evolved to risk aversion. Not a lot of room for growth and development.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

look at and listen to employees, communicate vision - lead don't manage

    Pros

    Provides decent salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Unless you have an advanced degree, the career path is very limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should look at your experience and can you perform at your level instead of what degree you hold. Too much emphasis on advanced degrees. Forced bell curves rating systems should be abandoned. You should reward the good people and deal with people that don't meet the job expectations.

    Pros

    The environment at DuPont is wonderful and many of my colleagues are also very good friends. You feel that the company actually cares about their employees and does everything that they can to ensure a non-competitive environment. The quality of research is very high and the programs are challenging.

    Cons

    There is always bureaucracy in large corporations, which is certainly an issue at DuPont. Things take longer than they should, but they eventually still get done.
