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

Pros

DuPont considers certification as a Green Belt a condition of employment for exempt employees, and Black Belt certification is expected from any professional who wants to advance in the company. Master Black Belts are highly respected and compensated.

Cons

DuPont does not hire talent from outside at senior levels. We hire engineers and PhD Scientists out of school, then train and sort them into Marketing, Sales, Technical, Manufacturing etc. roles. Yes, even Marketing and all the other functions like HR and IT are largely populated by engineers and scientists; this really is a science company.

Advice to Management

If we want to change things in the culture, such as increasing the value of speed over being 100% sure of every decision, consider hiring in a larger number of mid-level managers from smaller companies. Hire people who do not view a multinational's geological time scale to be normal, and hire them into levels that can effect change. Outside MBBs would be a good place to start.

    Pros

    Safety is a #1 priority with this company. Although occasionally production, finished quality product out the door, can appear to temporarily override this fine feature.

    Cons

    Recent benefit reductions. As in many of todays companies, the good benefits of yesterday are being shortchanged to stay competitive.
