    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Work life balance is excellent. Core values are safety, respect for others. Lots of opportunity for advancement. People are respectful.

    Cons

    Corporate environment, difficult to get things done quickly. Employees are now doing jobs of 3 employees. Managers and employees are so multi-task oriented that projects are not done well with enough attention to detail.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees focus on fewer projects, instead of being multi-task oriented. Overall, Dupont is a great place to work. Work / life balance is excellent.

    Too many managers

    Every employee hides behind their given responsibilities to avoid getting new work/projects
    Difficult to get work completed b/c of lazy culture

    Advice to Management

    Need to give lower level engineers more responsibility, such as control over a budget or other decision making power. It is very difficult to get any work done when you have to go through 10 managers to check if its alright to do anything
