    I worked at DuPont full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Laid back environment, good pay, some genuinely friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    The management is a joke. Laziness is rampant. Very clique-heavy environment. Patient appreciation is feigned at best by management. Younger employees tend to get pushed out because we notice the changes which need to be made, and most of the older employees won't like it as they are comfortable with the environment, no matter how inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Actually try making real adjustments and not superficial ones to satisfy upper management. Make an effort to implement employee-suggested methods to induce change.

    I worked at DuPont full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people employed there. Safe place to work. Management made a good effort to raise the training level and professionalism of the work force.

    Cons

    Unfortunately this location was closed in 2016. Most people found other jobs relatively quickly partly because of their job skills and high level of training.

    Advice to Management

    Over years poor business decisions have been made which severely limited the profitability of this company. Most of management has turned over with golden parachutes. New management has totally changed company.
