    I worked at Chemours full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People, pay, and work schedule. Management treats everyone like family, no matter your job title. Their able to maintain a family atmosphere despite the size of the workforce.

    Cons

    None. I literally cannot write one con about Chemours. I wish they had more plants throughout the U.S. to give more people the opportunity to work for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on.

    I have been working at Chemours full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits are competitive with other chemical companies, some opportunities with training are starting to become more available for employees

    Cons

    There have been significant improvements in the financial situation of the company. This was a result of cost savings effots across the company. Examples include layoffs, reduction in plant maintenance activities, consolidation of roles, plant closures, etc. This will not be sustainable, especially if safety principles instituted by DuPont continue to be erroded.

    Advice to Management

    I urge management to not migrate too far from the safety legacy of the parent company of Chemours. Some sites have been cut to the bone with staffing. Putting profits above safety will ultimately lead to major problems.

    Pros

    *First and foremost - Any review about Chemours and too much DuPont legacy MUST be written by people that NEVER worked for DuPont.
    * Worked for DuPont for several years, and then left for 5+ years to experience the "rest of the chemical world". Came to Chemours this year and I can tell you the ONLY piece of this company that even slightly resembles old DuPont is the way Chemours values its people.
    * This is a fast moving, innovative, forward looking, growing company
    * Strong values for Safety, Innovation, Ethics, and Customer Focused
    * Respectful, fun work environment. Work Hard - Play Hard
    * Every person in this company from the top to the bottom is driven to make this company more successful each and every day.
    If you want to learn every day, work cross functionally, and have your opinions heard, and be recognized and rewarded for your hard work -- This is the place for you!

    Cons

    The only downside at all is the location of corporate headquarters being in downtown Wilmington as it does cost you money in city wage tax and parking (which averages at about $180/month for parking). Getting out of the city would certainly add to the draw of Chemours, but I don't see that ever happening.

    Advice to Management

    Now that we are thriving, let's look at our longer term goals and work accordingly. Keeping growing the company - and do more to get the word out there about Chemours (commercials - marketing - etc!) Spread the Orange Word!

    I have been working at Chemours full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Winning products and market position (business portfolio). Investing in new plants and technology. CEO is very pragmatic. Allows mobile professionals.

    Cons

    Too many in leadership stuck in the old DuPont ways. Too rigid in trying to force people to do business the old DuPont way. Unwilling to change. Substandard employee development program for other than a “select” few. Employees spread too thin.

    Advice to Management

    Add some resources who have a different perspective on how to get things done. There ARE ways other than the DuPont way of doing things and sometimes those ways are better. Invest in your people. Adapt.

    I have been working at Chemours full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Chemours is a very safety conscience company and despite it's age, it is willing to take risks when the opportunity arises.

    Cons

    Being a young company is as much of a hindrance as it is a gift. Mistakes are made regarding local management, site closures, and public outreach.

    Advice to Management

    Advice would be to listen to local employees concerns and heed it.
