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

    Pros

    Having the backing of DuPont increases the potential for success on large and capital intensive projects.

    Cons

    The DuPont culture is less open and vibrant than what we are used to from Genencor, and could lead to lower levels of motivation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change our culture - too much.

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

    Pros

    Corporate interview/offer allowed me to get a very good salary.

    Cons

    The company, as a whole stresses, "core values" such as respect for people and safety/health, however, at the Valdosta site, upper management will use these values against you if they have a personal problem with you. I was harassed for months by another employee and when I finally spoke out, I was retaliated against and put on probation. If you are disliked by a select group of management, they will try to get you on a safety or respect violation in order to get you out the door, or at least dock your pay. They don't respect individual thinkers. Hard work isn't valued. Management gossips about people as bad as those working on the floor. I am so very dissapointed by this experience. I hope that corporate is ignorant to what is going on there, otherwise this established company is quickly going down-hill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest, be fair, stay out of people's personal lives, and don't play fast and loose with their lively-hoods.
