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

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay with no degree!

    Cons

    With pending merger, they put people with seniority out to pasture and to find another job with still being able to work, but being middle makes it harder!

    Advice to Management

    n/a They will do what they want to make sure they line their fat pockets!

    I worked at DuPont full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good brand name to include in your profile. and great 401K.

    Cons

    DSS seriously lacks people leaders. Perception is everything, managers ignore the facts purposefully.

    Advice to Management

    Practice walk the talk, build trustworthy environment, weed out non-performing leaders.

    Pros

    Possible to achieve longevity, fair salary and benefits. Team camaraderie is good and customer service related training resources are readily accessible.

    Cons

    Customer Service leadership does not reward or recognize employee efforts. No opportunities for personal development. No work from home flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the existing talent, offer growth opportunities.

    I worked at DuPont full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers were by far the best group I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    It was all about the pounds out the gate! No time for safety & making sure the technology was the latest. Why bother doing that when the products selling.

    Advice to Management

    Should have listened to the employees more instead of the investors

    I have been working at DuPont full-time

    Pros

    This job was excellent if you are able to work twelve hour swing shifts. The pay was excellent, benefits were competitive and the overall culture was fun. I thought this was going to be a career until retirement.

    Cons

    Twelve hour swing shifts means nights, weekends and holidays. Going through a merger with another large company we got picked to close the doors. Thankfully they did give us ample time and resources to find another job.

    Pros

    High standards of corporate responsibility. The company is focused on safety of employees, customers, and other people directly affected by their products. Good human resources practices.
