I worked at DuPont full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Salary is competitive, great benefits, Industry Reputation, Work Life is great, most people are highly educated

Cons

- Reorganization of corporate functions is disruptive to new employee moral
- Eliminating high level positions, distributing the work load
- Managers seem to be found of hiring their children
- Cost cutting limits productivity and moral
- Older employees for the most part have the 'golden handcuffs on and do not want rock the boat or speak up to leadership'
- Top leadership say one thing and do the opposite
- Old demographics- average age is 54-60
- The culture is very weird, people are afraid to speak their mind, it really depends who you work for.

Advice to Management

Advice for college hires (non-engineering): Unless you are happy being very bored all the time and analyzing things that have been analyzed for the past 20 years- I would recommend looking at other companies -OR- Stay away from the Black Belt and entry level consulting roles that are in the Centers of Excellence.
