    I have been working at DuPont full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent benefits (health, dental, LTIP, generous contributory pension), fantastic work-life balance, flexible working opportunities (including remote worker contracts). Respectful and inclusive culture, lots of opportunities to learn and participate in new and interesting projects.

    Cons

    Lots of change due to mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. The dust should start to settle soon.
