      Pros

      Access to incredible technologies. Great people at every level. Good working environment and benefits. Incredible brand recognition makes customer interactions and cold-calls easy.

      Cons

      Getting the organization to change is like trying to turn the Titanic. Lots of good intentions, more hot air than actions. Expect headcount reductions or shakeups every few years.

      Pros

      Good benefits Flexible working environment

      Cons

      Company is constantly merging and selling business and moving to new systems. There is no consistency. Everything is for the shareholder. Management is so worried about their next promotion they never really fix anything.

      Great place to work!

      Pros

      This company went through an acquisition while I was an intern. Formerlly Genencor (a Danisco Division). It was a great place to work, had a positive work environment. There was always ways to find out more information about how each department/team was doing. The employees were able to get to know each other through different company sponsored events such as grill outs, softball teams and CR Kernels baseball nights.

      Cons

      -As an intern in HR there wasn't any opportunities to stay with the company in Cedar Rapids after I graduated. If there had been I would still be there.

      Pros

      The site is relatively small, so it is easy to get to know a lot of people. Plenty of very smart, easy-going, and fun individuals call this place "work", so it is a fun place to be at. There are a variety of projects, so the work environment can be very dynamic. The building also has a nice vibe and there is a good atmosphere overall.

      Cons

      DuPont's acquisition has changed the environment, and not necessarily for the best. There is a lot more bureaucracy and micromanagement of life outside work. The company also doesn't seem to promote often enough, and sometimes decides keep people with a fair amount of experience at the same job level for a prolonged amount of time despite consistent performance.
