    I have been working at DuPont full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Extremely good culture and employee care. Good career possibilities and safety. Working as a global structure allows regional connections and strong network. Very strong brand.

    Cons

    Still a big machine with too much politics and hard to climb up the ladder. Old processes and cultures are hard to change - new growth & results culture sometimes conflict with old processes and risk aversion.

    Advice to Management

    If they want to be a top leading company in the digital dominated future, along with quick innovation and customer focus, the culture change needs to happen faster.

    Company if falling apart and being sold off due to pending merger with Dow and poor management.

    Advice to Management

    Get better managers or fail.

    I have been working at DuPont full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Great work/life balance: it's easy to stop working at 5:01 and not have to worry about anything until the next work day. -Solid pay/benefits: as a member of the sales team, I was given a company car, phone, and iPad, with the gas and monthly plans all paid for. -Incredibly helpful employees: as a new hire working with people that had been at DuPont for decades, everyone was quite friendly and helpful as I got started...

    Cons

    -The size and age of the company makes it a pain to implement any sort of change. Bureaucracy is the name of the game. Most employees are old (the average age is about 50), and many lack even basic technical knowledge about email, smartphones, IT, etc. There's definitely a "we've always done it this way" sort of feeling when it comes to making any changes. People really have to be convinced something is broken before...

    Advice to Management

    Stop BSing when it comes to the development program. Don't make it seem like an amazing opportunity when it's really little more than an entry-level position with a few weeks of training during the year. It's not that it's a bad program; it's just that people become disappointed when you sell a dream that never comes to fruition.

    Former Employee - Marketing Specialist in Wilmington, DE
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at DuPont

    Pros

    Good hard working people that cared about their jobs and the businesses they represented

    Cons

    Senior Leadership was out of touch and didn't practice what they preached. Marketing is lacking at the leadership level. Great brands that die off due to incompetence in Business Unit Leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Understand who you promote into leadership. If you believe in your core values, you need to do more than give it lip service. Stop downsizing the right people due to inept leadership and tring to be politically correct.

    I worked at DuPont

    Pros

    Benefits (Pay, 401k, Pension - no longer offered) Job assignments challenging Good work environment (fellow workers, offices) Company long history (200+ years)

    Cons

    Performance Evaluations merely an administrative chore, don't provide sufficient feedback for employee improvement/advancement. Office politics play too large a part in determining an employee's future

    Advice to Management

    Communication lacking between senior management and mid-lower level management. Company is risk adverse, not willing to step up and take advantage of opportunities. This attitude is witnessed at all levels of management.

    I have been working at DuPont

    Pros

    Large organization with ample opportunity to learn from experienced individuals. Willing to relocate employees who express an interest in pursuing career options. DuPont does seem to "take care of their own"

    Cons

    It is a conservative company (Large, 200+ yrs old) that is often slow to make decisions or decisions need to gain approval at a higher level than compared to small, more entrapanurial organizations. There are also a large number of long-time DuPont employees (20+ yrs of service with DuPont) which fosters a "We've always done it this way" mentality. One additiona concern is the "We're DuPont" attitude and the customer...

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more risk-taking and push authority down to lower levels. Create P&L centers a lower levels and eliminate the separation of operations from the businesses.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at DuPont

    Pros

    Dupont is a great place to work if you are looking for work-life balance, professional development, and trying new careers. Also, DuPont's pay and benefits are very good versus many other chemical companies. Everyone is generally very friendly and polite. In addition, coworkers are frequently willing to help each other. DuPont religiously promotes safety at work.

    Cons

    Working harder and smarter is not rewarded and being lazy is not punished. DuPont's culture values time in level for promotions. Politics and being liked is very important to career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Put more focus into a 2, 5, and 10 year plan than you do our quarterly plan. Stop scrambling with tactics. Develop and sustain a strategy.
