A great place to begin a career

Senior Chemical Engineer (Current Employee)
Orange, TX

ProsExcellent work/life balance. Technical staff is highly skilled and open to sharing/mentoring/training of new employees. Lots of resources to pull from across the company (must be patient and willing to deal with red tape). Some opportunity to travel. Nearly impossible to get fired unless you commit some grossly innappropriate action or non professional behavior. Across the whole company DuPont has one of the strongest technical staffs aged 50+ relative to any other company. This however will change over the next 5-10 years due to poor staffing practices. If the company were better off financially, I honestly believe DuPony would attempt to be more competitive with attracting and retaining top talent.

ConsUpper management still thinks that DuPont and Dow rule the world. Compensation and benefits are very poor relative to other peer companies. No pension for new employees, poor 401K options. As expectations are low, there tends to be a lot of folks riding out their career. When the "baby boomer" generation begins to retire en masse, DuPont will find itself with a horribly inexperienced technical staff. Company has been unable to hire employees away from other top companies resulting in very few fresh concepts and ideas being introduced.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop living in the past. Offer a competitive salary and benefits package and talented people will leave the competitors to come to DuPont, not the other way around. Abandon Six Sigma and put those people to work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
