    Decent work environment

    I have been working at DuPont

    Pros

    (1) Paid well (2) very safety conscious (3) research is supported well (4) super nice people to work with (5) flexible work hours (6) vacation is generous and used at employees own discretion.

    Cons

    (1) Employee rating system: Employees may be rated as underperforming even though they meet all expectations. System causes animosity amongst employees and very low moral. (2) No clear description for path to promotion (3) Respect for People is a core value however it is an oxymoron because of (a) the Employee rating system, (b) the large number of year to year contractor employees. How can you plan your life with a year to year contract, minimal vacation, and no benefits, (c) slashed medical benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not blame the "indians" when the "chiefs" are making all of the bad decisions. Focus on a well developed business plan with direction and implement the plan longer a year. Get feedback from rank and file employees. Employees are fearful of speaking out and being honest because of Rating/Ranking System.

    I have been working at DuPont as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great group to work with; most employees have been here for their whole career and are always willing to coach and mentor. This culture screams work/life balance.

    Cons

    Large company with offices all over the US; not the best at connecting and staying on the same page.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow leaders to emerge and empower them. Don't be so cautious to make a move and feel the need to hold several conference calls when proposing something "new". Innovation is years behind other large corp.
