Former Employee - Business Process Specialist in Wilmington, DE

I worked at DuPont full-time for 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.

    Pros

    Company is trying to move in a new direction to better position itself for future growth.

    Cons

    Very old company culture with outdated infrastructure, policies and practices that impede the kind of risk taking that successful companies tend to exhibit.

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