    nothing there to mention company is good to work for the experienced persons having at least 2-3 years outside dupont. If any freshers are there then they need to research or study a lot to understand the science back in it and the business as well

    I worked at DuPont full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Motivated, intelligent, friendly coworkers. You will learn a lot about a small slice of the company. Decent benefits. Positive work environment.

    Cons

    Management is top-down, immediate management has very little control. Corporate is impersonal, most services (payroll, IT, benefits support, etc.) are outsourced. Cost cutting is king.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at DuPont for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are about average for the industry (probably above average in some areas) good job stability (this has changed since I left though, with the DOW merger and the activist investors) Plenty of resources to do your work

    Cons

    lots of bureaucracy advancement is slow lots of turmoil with the company's leadership (CEO just stepped down and the merger with DOW)

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to decide what direction it is going to move in. The lack of direction affects all the employees and makes them feel like they have no real stake in the company.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at DuPont full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Often surrounded by great colleagues, frequently interesting research

    Cons

    Company gutted by greedy activist investors and a new CEO whose only goal was to break the company into smaller segments that will be more at the mercy of commodities markets than when DuPont was a whole.

    Advice to Management

    The most important group to be concerned about: your customers. The second, your employees. A distant third, stock holders.
