I have been working at DuPont full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Salary, benefits, work-life balance, most people are good to work with. Great place to work if you work in agriculture and industrial biosciences.

Cons

Poor career development - one is on there own here, leadership does not help at all. Leadership quality is highly variable - the company does not do a good job of developing people with leadership potential. Slow decision making processes. This is due to a lack of empowerment at all levels. Too many people are involved in the decision processes and too much consensus is required to get to a decision. DuPont is in the process of transforming itself from a material science company into a agricultural/industrial biosciences based company. As such opportunities and job security for material scientists are becoming scarce.

Advice to Management

Focus on improving leadership quality, and empowering your employees.

    Pros

    employed, better than unemployed. BUT GETTING WORSE.

    Cons

    hourly pay- not good anymore...made changes to the pay schedule so we get less money per month.took pension, medical sucks now.. obamacare is better, even our contractors get better benefits. SELLING ALL UNITS TO JAPAN!

    Advice to Management

    take care of the people and equipment, that make your living. then you would not have to sell off all your units!
