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

Pros

Once you are in at DuPont, you can feel very secure in your job. Layoffs are limited and it's very hard to get fired. Pay and benefits are good.

Cons

Some areas of the company treat scientists without PhDs poorly. There is a lack of communication between the parts of the company. Corporate directives are not followed equally throughout the company.

    "Hard to break in to the culture - people and work - since there were so many 25+ year employees."

    I worked at DuPont full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart scientists.
    Tries hard to be global but every region and every business unit thinks they are unique.
    Six Sigma has been institutionalized.

    Cons

    Work experience from outside the company is not valued.
    Opportunities happen by knowing someone from having worked with them in the past. Very hard for experienced new hires to be known for upcoming opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    You know there has to be a problem when over 80% of the experienced new hires leave within 2 years. This is 'accepted' and there is no interest in trying to understand or change this. How do you get new ideas into the company?
