Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Salary, benefits, work-life balance, most people are good to work with.

Great place to work if you work in agriculture and industrial biosciences.

Cons

Poor career development - one is on there own here, leadership does not help at all.

Leadership quality is highly variable - the company does not do a good job of developing people with leadership potential.

Slow decision making processes. This is due to a lack of empowerment at all levels. Too many people are involved in the decision processes and too much consensus is required to get to a decision.

DuPont is in the process of transforming itself from a material science company into a agricultural/industrial biosciences based company. As such opportunities and job security for material scientists are becoming scarce.

Advice to Management

Focus on improving leadership quality, and empowering your employees.
