    I have been working at DuPont full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    DuPont has been an incredible blessing in my life by allowing me to explore different career avenues. The Field Engineering Rotational Program gave me wonderful experiences managing projects, acting as a business consultant, and exposed me to various career options. In summary, my resume is looking incredible!

    Also, having worked in other companies I can attest that DuPont has either one of the best, or THE BEST, corporate culture out there. Everyone (most) are friendly and respectful. Though it can get a bit "competitive" as in any other company when competing for select positions, for the most part everyone really helps each other.

    Cons

    You are not rewarded by your individual contributions. Having personally brought in, personally, Millions of revenue for the company, I got just a pat on the back and the same bonus. In fact, your individual performance factor is at an insignificant level. You are 10x more likely to get fired here for not holding a hand rail, than actually doing your work (seriously).

    I have been working at DuPont full-time

    Pros

    Great people. Good salary. Safety. Average benefits. Good 401K match. Advancement at some levels.

    Cons

    Management top-heavy. Unknowns about merger with Dow. Facilities could be better maintained. Limited growth at masters level and below (science communities tend to be PhD-centric).

    Advice to Management

    Just because you have a PhD doesn't mean you are any good at management. You need business people in these positions.

    Pros

    Salary is competitive, great work/life balance

    Cons

    Used to be a lot of internal career opportunities, but the company has become very stagnant these days, having eliminated so many positions. Benefits have also dwindled over time. Merger concerns. Decisions still take too long to make.

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

    Pros

    New CEO has simplified management structure (a good thing in reducing red tape) and reorganizing portfolio for future success. People are great to work with, strong products and value propositions.

    Cons

    High level of uncertainty during merger period, people continued to be worried about ongoing workforce reductions, and benefits keep getting trimmed.

    Advice to Management

    As quickly as possible, get through period of change and provide some assurance of job stability to your valued employees.
