Pros

Able to work at home office if needed. Benefits and compensation are in the mid-range of other companies.

Cons

Many individuals have been with the company most if not their entire lives. For individuals who are new or with a few years experience, it is very difficult to work here. New thoughts are not welcomed. Little to no career advancement or support to get it. I have known many individuals with talent and drive who have left. I am not far behind.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Assess management's ability to attract and retain talent. Fix the cultural and structural flaws.

    I have been working at DuPont

    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

    I have been working at DuPont

    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.
