    I Enjoy Working at Dupont

    Oct 10, 2022 - Quality Lab Technician in Salisbury, NC

    Pros

    1. Large company with large benefits package (ex. match 3% for Retirment and give you an extra 3% so you can have a total of 9%) 2. Company deals 3. Work for a well-respected company 4. My coworkers are nice, easy to talk to, and honest 5. Dupont makes products that people use daily and safety innovations of the future (ex. ArmorWall) 6. The pay is upper-middle across the board. With my entry/ first lab job out of college I make approximately $17/hr compared to the average $15/hr. 7. The company is big on safety which I like :)

    Cons

    1. The company learning modules aren't always completable due to formatting of the questions. 2. Due to being part of a large company, it is slow to get things changed.

    Used to be great....now...not so much

    Pros

    The pay and the benefits are decent and the 401k is very good. Get to work with top notch people.

    Cons

    The recent activist investor battle is killing the company. Cost cutting layoffs and instability are causing people to quit left and right. Young people are leaving and the older workers will be retiring in a few years. I'm not sure how the company will handle this loss of talent. Across the board benefits aren't as good as they used to be. Morale is really bad. Hopefully things will turn around and this can be a great company again...but my money is on it being mediocre at best.

    Pros

    Talking about the glory days from projects long long ago.

    Cons

    Too many business have been cast out of the corporation and too many talented people have been let go.

    Good place to work

    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.

    Difficult place to have a career right now

    Pros

    The people were top notch, talented, and dedicated. I enjoyed working with them very much- my close-nit work group quickly became some of my best friends and favorite people to be around.

    Cons

    Despite claiming "Respect for People" as a core value, DuPont corporate management appears to have little regard for it's people. I was proud to be part of a talented research and development team working for a DuPont business making hundreds of millions of dollars in profit, until I witnessed half of my colleagues, roughly a hundred people, laid off just to improve the bottom line just a bit more. Some were people we had just hired out of school, some were out on maternity leave, some were just about start their maternity leave, some were within five years of retirement after 25+ years of service to the company. I do not see any real future for this company. I would not recommend working here.
