I worked at DuPont full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Originally very secure company, cared about employees, very innovative, leader in their field. It felt like you were part of an exciting organization dedicated to research.

Cons

Very staid, set in their ways regarding the corporate culture. The higher I moved up into management, the more politics and turf issues came into play. There was a tremendous amount of sub-optimization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mangement pays a lot of lip service to whatever the latest HR fad is. They need to focus on sending a coherent message out to their employees and then backing that up with their own actions.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Disapproves of CEO
