Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at DuPont full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Able to build up a career network

Cons

As an engineer, work not challenging; work with too many people that are not innovative & creative; big disconnect in what the company says and what it actually does

Advice to Management

Hard to advise on this since it is striking how leaders and managers do nothing to change the culture and help those who are talented and driven. Status quo seems to be the way to go.

    I worked at DuPont full-time

    Pros

    The employees are empathetic and innovative, the work is fulfilling, and the site offers a fitness center as well as a subsidized lunch every day. The change in ownership put a heavy emphasis on safety.

    Cons

    This same emphasis on safety could easily take more time than one would expect - it led to one rushing to complete the required jobs, which obviously doesn't aid in improving safety. Management lacks the one mantra that came with the change of ownership from Danisco to DuPont - respect for people. Continued implied threats of job loss do not encourage a workforce to work smarter or safer. Little transparency between managers and staff - no 360 degree reviews were performed during my time there.
