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

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at DuPont full-time (More than a year)

Pros

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

Cons

Work 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 Management

You 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?
