      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I started with DuPont out of college in 2011. Having been at 4 different sites in that time, this is a summary of what I've experienced. Great 401k program: 100% match up to 6% plus 3% extra from company Competitive pay for the chemical industry Excellent diversity within the company - both employees and business units Managers and peers care about you Ellen Kullman had the right idea of keeping the company together

      Cons

      Slow decision making, small sites are better than large sites Poor handle on capital investments - very little growth projects Have lost many great colleagues due to layoffs, spin-offs and sales Too many managers, not enough employees at the production sites Too many headquartered in Wilmington that cripple decision making processes Never enough resources committed to make something work causing projects to drag out Corporate rollouts and initiatives, but this has lighted up in the last few years Little to no formal classroom training, there used to be much more 5 years ago Wide differences between rewards and celebrations between sites, less than there used to be Constant change does not let up

      Good and Bad

      Pros

      Dupont is a good company and a very good employer. We all have our complaints, but the reality is that people strive to be able to work here and don't want to leave. Maybe that says something. The value in DuPont was largely created a long time ago with the big discoveries in chemistry following WWII. These products and businesses have been sustaining the company since. Compensation is generally higher than the average. Many of the aspects of the culture can be difficult to take, but in the end provides for a respectful workplace. Colleagues are some of the brightest people you will ever know.

      Cons

      DuPont is poorly managed. Most managers spend their time managing their careers and not their areas of responsibility. The culture is so hierarchical that decision making grinds to a halt and management often avoids making decisions entirely. Despite attempts to change how the company operates, many people still maintain a silo mentality about their jobs. Ed Breen is doing what needs to be done.
