Good pay and benefits, corporate culture leaves a lot to be desired.

I worked at DuPont full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Compensation in pay, bonus, benefits, flexible work schedule, travel, relocation, retirement and almost everything else monetary is good.

Cons

Culture is slow moving and stuck in the previous century. People can combative, but they stab you in the back while smiling to your face. The status quo is praised while innovation is stifled in bureaucracy. It is better to do only one thing successfully each year, than to do 99 things successfully and one thing unsuccessfully. Presentations are more important than ideas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

All the stovepipe businesses and functions need to start acting like One DuPont, rather than just reciting the mantra.

    Cons

    Too many rules result in slow/poor decision making
    Traditional and conservative management can be restrictive to those fresh out of university

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the fast moving employees by offering compensation or more recognition.

    Solid Company, but experience very dependent on health of particular business unit. Don't get rooted in one unit!

    I worked at DuPont full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to get variety of experiences within one company. Chance to cross functions, if you have good track record. Stable company.

    Cons

    Very insular view; majority of managment came up through ranks...good "DuPonters" doesn't necessarily mean good business people. Focus on internal processes and scorecards obscures focus on customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great innovations lead to great mkt position. Struggle when market is more competitive; need more leaders with diversity of experience.
