    I worked at DuPont full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to get variety of experiences within one company. Chance to cross functions, if you have good track record. Stable company.

    Cons

    Very insular view; majority of managment came up through ranks...good "DuPonters" doesn't necessarily mean good business people. Focus on internal processes and scorecards obscures focus on customers.

    Advice to Management

    Great innovations lead to great mkt position. Struggle when market is more competitive; need more leaders with diversity of experience.
