Pros

Excellent ethics and integrity go through the company, underlined by core values especially safety. Good work-life balance though getting tougher as we are leaner, common across corporations these days.

Cons

Can be slow/difficult to drive change. The strength is working with teams and getting input on change, but some things have to be driven to be competitive. Need to ensure we keep valuing the technologies and experts who helped make the company what it is.

Advice to Management

Need to remember to keep developing people even as competition has intensified. Fewer development opportunities than in the past and these are needed for the long term.

    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.
