    Pros

    The environment at DuPont is wonderful and many of my colleagues are also very good friends. You feel that the company actually cares about their employees and does everything that they can to ensure a non-competitive environment. The quality of research is very high and the programs are challenging.

    Cons

    There is always bureaucracy in large corporations, which is certainly an issue at DuPont. Things take longer than they should, but they eventually still get done.

    Pros

    Provides decent salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Unless you have an advanced degree, the career path is very limited.

    Advice to Management

    Management should look at your experience and can you perform at your level instead of what degree you hold. Too much emphasis on advanced degrees. Forced bell curves rating systems should be abandoned. You should reward the good people and deal with people that don't meet the job expectations.
