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

    The people are great at this site. Everyone is more than willing to do their part. Roles and responsibilities are clearly defined and there was good structure and organization. Goals were very apparent and communicated. There was also great team-work.

    Cons

    DuPont seems to be selling off its chemical sites or tearing them down. Some of their systems needed to be converted into electronic systems as well as some of their documentation.
