    Pros

    Great pay, work life balance, company gives utmost importance to its core values.
    Employees are treated in a very friendly way, and great for people joining in senior management

    Cons

    Very poor leadership, leaders can not prioritize, there is no vision and there is no one to question the management.
    Lack of judgement and politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lot of restructuring needed and better planning of product portfolios and market cap.

    Pros

    Amazing facilities, very good Transport option- both pick and drop from home. Very good location with all possible amenities provided to employees.

    Cons

    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.

    I worked at DuPont as an intern (less than an year)

    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.

    Pros

    Compensation is good; many responsibilities while remaining within your comfort zone.

    Cons

    Middle level Management for certain technologies are really good and some are equally localized and nowhere near to be called as leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity will always be there but then being able to understand that aspect in its complete sense and adherence to the core values need to be ensured especially with some of the mid-level managers.
