    Pros

    Fast paced, great co-workers, great products

    overload with extra admin work makes it difficult to do actual job. Not focused on customers focused on data. threatened frequently to complete data as well as get more business. Can't retain employees that are valuable which adds more strain on business and remaining employees

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and keep them happy in order to grow your business instead of constantly threatening them and doubling their work load.

    Pros

    Great people. great 401 k matching, not bad benefits or severance offering. flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Hris systems not user friendly. paid monthly isnt fun. No orientation to company when hired. get employee handbooks for people so they arent clueless to policies when they start. No pension anymore.

    Advice to Management

    You laid iff most of hr and put hr responsibilities on managers. we need our hr personnel to run business effevtively. managers dont spend enough time with employees. have resources availavle to employees on first day. took a month for me to get a laptop.

    I worked at DuPont full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Kevlar used in Spray-Lining & Coatings relates to other aramids like Nomex and Technora. Careers here are still growing fast, especially in truck bed liners, pond coatings, trailer coating and Polyurea. With SL&C it was developed by Stephanie Kwolek. In 1965 in DuPont this high-strength material initially was commercially used to replace steel in racing tires. All careers within DuPont relative to SL&C or Spray-Lining & Coatings provide fast advancement and top pay.

    Cons

    Bedliner vendors such as Rhino Linings or Line-X with a few others may have abused their own dealerships along with spray-on lining clientele by using the term Kevlar when it's not necessarily included in Spray-Lining polyurea outside of SL&C. That can affect DuPont as well as it's staff within Kevlar, Spray-Lining bedliner formulas.

    Advice to Management

    Provide stronger license requirements to use the term Kevlar or DuPont.
