    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.

    Good benefits, an old company with a lot of people playing politics

    I worked at DuPont

    Pros

    Good 401k match up to 9% of the salary! Easy life at work without much pressure as compared to a small company.

    Cons

    You do not learn much technically over the years. Many people advance career by playing politics, such as organizing safety review often, and kissing up managers. There is lack of accountability of failing a project due to poor management and incompetency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to hire managers who know the technical well.
