Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Benefits, They too are going away though, more cost and less range of benefits

Cons

Managers are merely puppets, their whole purpose is to send as much work out of the states as possible, it does not matter how many times we have to fix and redesign the work here, they will hide the funds and hide all the mistakes, there are hundreds of jobs that could be put to good use here in the states, it is a shame that the company has no regard for the people here in the states and don't care about the company since the direction they are heading in will be their demise.

Advice to Management

Find managers that know the chemical business not bean counters that only know how to count pennies and run a business in the ground based on their own selfish beliefs, the mentality must change for all speciality chemical companies or they will be no more, We brought this company to where it is now, technology, design, mentality and expertise, sending our jobs to a 3rd world country is absurd, and not in the interest of the working people, Ellen needs to undestand the dire situation of the jobs being sent outside, we have the expertise right here and they will do it right the first time with little direction, I don't know how any CEO that is doing this practice of sending jobs away can sleep at night, have you no shame or conscience.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Work Life Balance is great. People are great.

    Cons

    Lack of long term focus and constantly shifting priorities. Approval processes are just plain broken. It takes for ever to get anything approved and then you have to hurry up and spend your funding before it is reallocated to another project. It takes a long time to get a decision made. The culture is very risk adverse.

    Advice to Management

    Reward and encourage prudent risk taking. Stop micromanaging costs and focus on growth.

    Pros

    Brand equity in the market Working with smart people Stability

    Cons

    What life-long "DuPonters" describe as a "collaborative" culture, really means that we will have a million meetings and never come to a decision Pace is really slow and you are not rewarded for driving results No longer have unique products

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing solely on reducing working capital and expenses and put in metrics (at least equally weighted) for growth.
