I have been working at DuPont Pioneer full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Focused upon employee safety; Opportunity to advance; pay for performance; high ethical standards; solid financially and investing well for the future

Cons

It can be hard to advance very much without moving and it can be hard to get the highest performance rating if you state that you are not willing to move. DuPont has a high percentage of people set to retire in 5 years and the pressure to move people and train them more broadly is evident.

Advice to Management

don't get so focused on promoting people that are willing to move that you become like Am-Cy in the 90s.

    I worked at DuPont Pioneer part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the field as a research worker in the summer. The staff is friendly. They make sure you are healthy, safe and comfortable during working hours. Training is quick and most tasks are simple.

    Cons

    I worked in the field as a research worker in the summer. Although the hourly pay is very good, work days were extremely short, and it makes it hard to make a decent amount of money.

    Advice to Management

    Allow field research workers to have more hours.
