I have been working at DuPont full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The "pros" are quickly going away. I am concerned about new employees dues to very poor training practices.

Cons

If you want an HR group that manages from the office - this is the place to be. Silly policies based on lack of employee input. HR is not willing to listen but very good at "here's the way it is going to be" approach. Most employees have not even met the HR group except during new hire sessions. What a joke!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

How many times to you have to say it - LISTEN, GET OUT and meet your employees. Email and plant posting are not interactive discussions. Since you always follow other corporations (versus creating your own new ideas) then at least find complanies that have good ideas.

    I worked at DuPont full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible schedule, low standards

    Cons

    Company is pretty content with the status quo. Don't push for change or new ideas. Employees who follow the rules and don't do anything wrong are celebrated, while those who challenge the existing way of thought and try to innovate are not valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Raise your standards for hiring new employees. 2. Put those employees in roles that are best suited to their strengths. 3. Give those employees the freedom to be creative problem solvers within the scope of their role. 4. Sit back and reap the rewards.
