Current Employee - Chemical Engineer

I have been working at DuPont full-time for more than a year

Pros

Challenging assignments really push engineers technically. Very safety-focused. Stable employment. Wide variety of opportunities within the various businesses. Many businesses are really at the cutting edge of technology.

Cons

Salary is average. Very little take-home incentive to over-achieve as a young engineer. Projects follow a "rush and stop" flow a lot of the time. Good performers are rewarded with more work and longer hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure adequate pay for your top employees. In other words, provide a larger incentive for excellent performance. The only way to recruit the best of the best out of school is to provide a financially-strong offer.

    I have been working at DuPont full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    History of company discoveries has helped many but that is in the past. Safety of employees is still strong.

    Cons

    Major law suits in the past few years is very disappointing. Management spends more time doing "coverup work" than fixing the problems. Benefits are not good and getting worst. Pay, based on hours in a work week is very poor!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move on and let someone else lead us

    I have been working at DuPont full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Stable and secure employment, good compensation and benefits, solid training opportunities and programs.

    Cons

    Not an energizing company, little opportunity for advancement unless you have been preordained, senoir managers are rotated through the businesses causing disruption and lack of leadership continuity, pervasive fear among managers in making decisions, more concerned with image than substance,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to make faster decisions that will help and lead your organizations instead managing up.
