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

    Pros

    Good work life balance, 401K

    Cons

    Not enough work to keep busy most of the time. People can be elitist and judgemental. Old arrogant mindset that DuPont is the best, yet that mentality is what brought them to this merger crisis. Management cannot be trusted. If you don't fit into the culture, you are gone. Beware. Job stability is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Too many layers of managers, it's not needed.

    Pros

    Meaningful work. Good company to work for. Innovative work force. Good pay and good health benefit. Good safety culture.

    Cons

    Now a days lots of changes are taking place. Jobs are not very stable. Future of the company is unknown.

    Advice to Management

    Management can't do much with current change in company direction. They need to value their employee more.

    I worked at DuPont for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits; stable company (been around for over 200 years); good people to work with

    Cons

    Bureaucratic culture makes it hard to get things done. Bottom up culture makes standardization and corporate efforts very difficult; Lots of leaders but no "worker bees"

    Advice to Management

    Hold plants accountable for their performance (availability, quality, compliance, costs); When you set a standard, the plants must be required to comply or what's the point?

    Pros

    Work-life balance, safe, respectful environment

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are mediocre. Always seems like the company is cheap when it comes to attracting talent.

    Advice to Management

    If you actually want top engineering and management talent and compete for such talent a strong adjustment to salary structure will be needed.
