Current Employee - Six Sigma Black Belt in Wilmington, DE

I have been working at DuPont full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Many opportunities to develop and grow.
Great people who care generally care.
Good benefits

Cons

Management of people, priorities, and their roles reduces organizational productivity.
After work force reductions, remaining work does not get eliminated requiring in some cases new contractors to be trained to do the same thing.
Many moving parts and technical expertise prevent projects from moving quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be transparent and recognize/promote people fairly across the organization to allow better career growth.
Carefully manage the major changes ahead to prevent political motives from overtaking goals to improve employee engagement.

    Former Employee - Supply Chain in Richmond, VA
    Former Employee - Supply Chain in Richmond, VA

    I worked at DuPont full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and relatively good benefits. This is about the only "pro" from my perspective. I can only speak about the Spruance facility as it was the only site I saw.

    Cons

    80 year old plant with 80 year old culture. They have not moved into the 21st century yet. No focus on customers or employees, only on the shareholder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your customers and employees and your shareholders will get taken care of by default. Reversing that order will not allow you to attract and retain good talent.
