I worked at DuPont

Pros

Dupont offers good compensation package compared to other companies in wilmington, de.

Cons

You can the best hardest working employee but you will still stay at the same level you were when you were hired. Unless of course you are very good at kissing some major butt with your managers. I say Managers because every year you work you will wind up with a different manager who has absolutely know idea what you do but yet when it comes to your review will give you a negative one. Also, if you enjoy switching jobs every 2 years for the next 30 years then this is the place for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to focus on more of what their employees do rather than just trying to get promoted to their next job assignment.

    You can be happy at DuPont (if you don't mind backstabbing your coworkers)

    I worked at DuPont

    Pros

    There is a strong mechanical engineering group, with some on ASME code committees. Some are willing to teach younger engineers.

    Cons

    The location was not very good. The plant is in the middle of a small town (Ornage, TX) with no night life. Shops close early on the week days, and you're lucky to find one open on the the weekends. East Texas is not a friendly area for minorities. Employees tend to be very clicky, so if you're not part of the group, it's tough to succeed. There's a lot of GOB networking. Employees are very cut throat, and I witnessed this behavior encouraged by management. Needless to say, it's a highly stressful work environment. Beware of who you trust. Management does not support outside training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do not reward employees who sabotage other employees

    Pros

    Good Pay, relatively good benefits. Looks liek there's advancement potential...but you need to do it the duPont way.

    Cons

    You need to do things the duPont way. Hiring processes at some facilities wasn't always kept continuous and it results in out of balance work crews. Think: the average age ina plant is 50 years with 30 years of service. How does a young person start in that plant? How about the difficulty of a much younger engineer asking much older operators to do something?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suppose that they do their best, but the workder demographics must be more finely worked out.

    No opinion of CEO
