    If you're a contract employee, get used to being second class and unappreciated.

    I have been working at DuPont

    Pros

    Many good people to work with.
    Great name recognition on resumes
    Some managers (now retired) were very supportive and nurtured a good environment for growth and for reaching potential.

    Cons

    Many people are promoted who don't qualify and don't have the skills to manage.
    Office politics is rampant, and stifling.
    People in management positions are out of touch with reality.
    Consultants from the "big guys" are treated okay, but contract IT employees without the backing of a major consulting firm are screwed.
    Some managers micromanage, rather than trusting their employees not to be morons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only promote people to management who truly deserve it. Trust your employees to know their jobs. Hire good people directly.

    Pros

    A wide array of projects in all areas of science are potentially available. Family friendly working environment.

    Cons

    Starting pay is not very high, and it never gets better than average throughout the career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be an event better company to work for if it paid 10% more.
