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

    Pros

    Good people employed there. Safe place to work. Management made a good effort to raise the training level and professionalism of the work force.

    Cons

    Unfortunately this location was closed in 2016. Most people found other jobs relatively quickly partly because of their job skills and high level of training.

    "SPRAY-LINING & COATINGS OF DUPONT"

    I have been working at DuPont full-time

    Pros

    DuPont raw materials are used on Spray-Lining & Coatings. Vendors as Line-X or Rhino Linings cannot compete with truck bed liners from Spray-Lining & Coatings. Others outclassed by SLC are Pond Armor, Rubberizeit!, Herco Rubber, CIM 1000 reviews, and Pond Shield. Thats why salaries for Spray-Lining & Coatings for Process engineer are over $142,000.00 annually.

    Cons

    Seal Tite plus SLC spray-on truck bedliner kits get unethical competition through some applicators of similar but lower quality durable coatings. These systems have owners who failed to use Spray-Lining Coatings' solutions. Weather polyurea for Koi Ponds, giant outdoor aquariums or big elastomeric polyurea jobs, much jealousy can occur in reviews of Spray-Lining & Coatings from these upset applicators or owners failing to compete fairly.

    I have been working at DuPont full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    As an engineering consultant, work on wide variety of projects. Technically challenging.

    Cons

    There is a god bit of politics and the environment is currently uncertain due to the merger with Dow and subsequent split.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at DuPont full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good salary, Benefits, and Vacation.

    Cons

    This company was great 15 years ago. Not a very entrepreneurial work environment, and the management structure is very dated. The culture is old-school, and people fear being punished if they admit a mistake. The company doesn't provide any social events to the employees. Now, everyone doesn't want to start a job for fear that they can't finish something. The work environment is very draining and inefficient. Giving 110% doesn't get appreciated unless you have a Degree from an ivy-league school. Boring jobs are given to very smart employees fresh out of college. The get stuck in a job with limiting scope that doesn't prepare them for the real world if they get downsized.

    I have been working at DuPont for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are good, people are friendly and quite helpful and work hours aren't too bad.

    Cons

    If you're a young engineer then you'll be surrounded by a lot of old timers who are really set in their ways. Also, the office building is straight up 35 years old and you can feel it!

    I worked at DuPont full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment for fathers with young kids and average or below-average work performance/engineering skills. Several of the male managers and experienced male engineers were focused on the family and took advantage of the family-friendly culture. This included babysitting their young kids in their offices during school vacations (even when they had stay-at-home spouses), paternity leave back-to-back with their vacation after birth of a new baby and fathers working from home when kid-related commitments came up and fathers being allowed to work from home on a regular basis after the birth of a new baby. Colleagues and management will invest a lot of time and training on poor performing engineers who are full-time. The most experienced engineers will train the poor performer and the manager will divert resources to rework unacceptable deliverables. Eventually, the engineer will start producing average work that meets minimum requirements. Engineers take time to get to know each other outside of work and will become personal friends. For example, engineers had a spontaneous, informal dog meetup in the office and bonded through their animals in the middle of the work day. One of the support staff does dog rescue and puppysits the fosters she adopted out to colleagues while they are traveling.

    Cons

    An extreme maldistribution of workload between technologies (STRATCO alkylation and IsoTherming hydroprocessing) and strong performers vs poor performers. Engineers do not help each other and will socialize instead of working (even when they have agreed with their manager beforehand to help out). Potential for extremely long hours per week (80+ and past midnight) for top performers with a unique skill that no one else at the local office possesses. Resources are limited and other business units/locations will not easily make themselves available due to job instability at their sites from massive restructuring. If you don't have young kids, plan to travel in place of colleagues with young kids or on longer trips/farther locations. If you are the only resource that can perform a certain task overseas, plan to travel for several weeks at a time - young kids or not. Corporate has taken away some of the perks, such as the ability to keep credit card mileage points and airline miles. This would have offset the pay, which is at least 10% lower than common to the oil refining industry. This was okay when the company had stable employment. Now, DuPont has experiencing multiple rounds of layoffs since 2012.
