      I worked at DuPont Pioneer full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Good pay and great benefits

      Cons

      Upper plant management was a joke. Preached about safety being #1, until it got in the way of hitting production goals.

      Advice to Management

      Former management is no longer at this location.
