Pros

Talented people Diverse and interesting job opportunities Encourage personal growth and development Respectful work environment Competitive compensation and benefits Strong brand and reputation

Cons

Slow decision making - particularly with tough decisions Fuzzy accountabilities Vision of what the company should be was vague and abstract for too long Haven't created a new blockbuster business in a very long time

Advice to Management

The company is committed to a major shift away from legacy chemistry and polymer-based businesses toward a biology-based future. Management must decide how to continue in this direction while retaining top talent in their legacy businesses. Nobody at DuPont wants to work in a cash cow.

    Pros

    fairly good work environment, flexible working schedule, supports balancing of work and life, values employees' safety, the pay is fair.

    Cons

    people tend to exaggerate the company's core value which is safety. the management is very stereotyped, communication is not enough.

    Advice to Management

    do not focus more than what is necessary on Safety issue. should make more effort on improving employees' working efficiency.

    Pros

    Good hard working people that cared about their jobs and the businesses they represented

    Cons

    Senior Leadership was out of touch and didn't practice what they preached. Marketing is lacking at the leadership level. Great brands that die off due to incompetence in Business Unit Leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Understand who you promote into leadership. If you believe in your core values, you need to do more than give it lip service. Stop downsizing the right people due to inept leadership and tring to be politically correct.
