Hard to break in to the culture - people and work - since there were so many 25+ year employees.

Manager (Former Employee)
Wilmington, DE

I worked at DuPont full-time for more than a year

ProsSmart scientists.
Tries hard to be global but every region and every business unit thinks they are unique.
Six Sigma has been institutionalized.

ConsWork experience from outside the company is not valued.
Opportunities happen by knowing someone from having worked with them in the past. Very hard for experienced new hires to be known for upcoming opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou know there has to be a problem when over 80% of the experienced new hires leave within 2 years. This is 'accepted' and there is no interest in trying to understand or change this. How do you get new ideas into the company?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
