Pros

Good pay and Good benefits

Cons

Sector hit hard by economy, people are doing anything to keep their jobs

Too much work for too few people right now

Advice to Management

Show more appreciation and compassion to employees. Provide employees with the tools and resources they need to do their jobs. Technology that does not necessarily meet the needs of the company have been forced upon employees - recent technology decisions have made employee's jobs more difficult. Shortcuts were taken to save money, but will cost more in the long run.

    Pros

    DuPont is one of the largest employers in a small area and one of the best paying. Would recommend working as an operator, since they work hard at keeping them happy. Not so true with salaried jobs.

    Cons

    Management changes frequently and they do not receive training. The attitude is sink or swim - especially since they had to go through that first. They provide less training than anywhere else I have ever worked and there was a lot of fingerpointing.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers and listen to employee feedback. HR totally backs the managers, not the people who report to them. I had heard that before working there and discovered it was very true.
