I worked at DuPont full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Salary is competitive, great benefits, Industry Reputation, Work Life is great, most people are highly educated

Cons

- Reorganization of corporate functions is disruptive to new employee moral
- Eliminating high level positions, distributing the work load
- Managers seem to be found of hiring their children
- Cost cutting limits productivity and moral
- Older employees for the most part have the 'golden handcuffs on and do not want rock the boat or speak up to leadership'
- Top leadership say one thing and do the opposite
- Old demographics- average age is 54-60
- The culture is very weird, people are afraid to speak their mind, it really depends who you work for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice for college hires (non-engineering): Unless you are happy being very bored all the time and analyzing things that have been analyzed for the past 20 years- I would recommend looking at other companies -OR- Stay away from the Black Belt and entry level consulting roles that are in the Centers of Excellence.

    Very good for a coop. Meaningful projects but you'll never feel overwhelmed.

    Pros

    Pay is good. The work is fun and meaningful.

    Cons

    They are selling their chemicals business. They are cheap; don't even bother filling out expense reports.

    Former Employee - Engineering Co-Op in Beaumont, TX

    I worked at DuPont as an intern (more than an year)

    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.
