Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Great reputation
Good company to have on your résumé
Stable company

Cons

Poor training for new or relocated employees
Changing from chemical company to "green" company and not gracefully
Disconnected, distant upper management
Poor compensation for the workload required

Advice to Management

Stop looking for employees to agree with everything you say. Figure out Wilmington doesn't make a product or a dime for the company.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at DuPont full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation in pay, bonus, benefits, flexible work schedule, travel, relocation, retirement and almost everything else monetary is good.

    Cons

    Culture is slow moving and stuck in the previous century. People can combative, but they stab you in the back while smiling to your face. The status quo is praised while innovation is stifled in bureaucracy. It is better to do only one thing successfully each year, than to do 99 things successfully and one thing unsuccessfully. Presentations are more important than ideas.

    Advice to Management

    All the stovepipe businesses and functions need to start acting like One DuPont, rather than just reciting the mantra.
