    Pros

    Good company to work with. which has Core values, and a person can have very good work life balance, working with du pont.

    Cons

    Biased management. management fails to recognizes the right talent. Mostly of the cases the people who are in favor of the management are given the recognition and opportunity instead of the people with the talent.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize with the right talent instead of showing favoritism.

    Confined to only one shift. But spread out for various time zones. Hopefully make it a global support centre all of them working for a european or indian timings would be preferable.

    Pros

    Good work culture, Low politics, work centric people with zero gossiping.

    Cons

    R&D office is very far from the city in outskirts, no work life balance as you have to reach on bus stop at 6:30-7 AM and come back at 8 PM. No mode of good transportation in case you are late or missed the bus, no flexi hours or work from home, Difficult for north indians as more than 80% employees speaks telegu all the time. Mess food is south Indian too.

  10. Its amazing and one of the best places to work with Dupont.
