    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at DuPont full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great reputation
    Good company to have on your résumé
    Stable company

    Cons

    Poor training for new or relocated employees
    Changing from chemical company to "green" company and not gracefully
    Disconnected, distant upper management
    Poor compensation for the workload required

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking for employees to agree with everything you say. Figure out Wilmington doesn't make a product or a dime for the company.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at DuPont full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very smart people, global company, vast resources, and significant presence across many industries - good vision for the future in addressing mega-trends.

    Cons

    Management not outstanding, still very much based on long term networks of people who started their career at DuPont - out of step with the world. Given the focus on innovation and science based new business - not a strong new business or venture capability.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk much more, address significant gaps on a lack of process thinking at the leadership level. Strong vision for the future on sustainability and collaboration, but weak execution.
