Current Employee - Supply Chain in Hayward, CA

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

Pros

Dupont is a big company so there is what seems to be a certain level of job security. The benefits and pay are decent.

Cons

Despite being a large company if you don't work in the heart of dupont in Wilmington Delaware things are hardly secure. DuPont is an east coast company that doesn't seem to take west coast facilities into consideration when making decisions regarding benefits and policies. Working for a business recently acquired by DuPont I have seen the culture that made working at our site attractive melt away as DuPont policies and mind sets have taken over. DuPont emphasizes respect for people at a high level but in reality the follow through is just not there. DuPont is nothing special when it comes to taking care of their employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

An ever increasing workload for the same pay and paltry annual increases is not how you show respect for people. Keeping temps/contractors on staff for years with no attempt to hire them full time is not showing respect for people. Step up and take care of your people for real.

    Work life balance is good, Smart People, Culture is Good, Pays well

    Cons

    Benefits are fair for a company this size it should be better, No job security at the moment while there axing companies, Too many managers whom don't have authority to make real change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes real change is needed, not just more rules, but more accountability per individual.
