I have been working at DuPont as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Great compensation and benefits. Good people. Great work environment and resources. A large knowledge of the market and all the products it produces

Cons

Wilmington is not the best location to live in for a young professional. There is not much going on in the surrounding area unless you go up to Philly or Baltimore

    Collective thinking to ensure stability kills initiative

    I worked at DuPont full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great values, great products, great work-life balance, excellent offices in many countries, very clear mission statement, clear annual review process.

    The company emphasizes stability and sustainability over immediate profit and in most cases truly sticks to its value, especially safety. 0 is the goal. If you have necessary key competencies for your level, can navigate thick political waters, and have PATIENCE to wait for your chance - you should do well in this company.

    Cons

    - LOTs of politics. LOTs.
    - Collective thinking that leads to countless hours of phone calls and non-objections. While this is good for ethics, it kills initiative as it's easier to keep it quiet.
    - One needs a 'sponsor' to progress higher once you are at certain level.
    - Most managers spend insufficient time for employee development - this works much better at the lower level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company spends hours on feedback, six sigma, etc and its management has a mind of its own. Management will not do anything that could potentially damage their career streak. Therefore they listen only to Wilmington & Geneva. Period.
