    I worked at DuPont full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Endless career paths. If you perform well in your current job and properly network with other functions, there are always opportunities to move around and gain experience with different roles. It can be subjective, but all of the managers I reported to while working for DuPont were good-to-great. Competitive salary for most roles.

    Cons

    Business processes were always outdated. Decision making was slow and often required too many levels of approval. Culture wasn't great, especially at production sites. "Us vs them" attitude common. HR leadership seemed disconnected from actual workforce. Early and mid-career technical role salaries are low if you do not hold an advanced degree. Careers away from company HQ can feel disconnected from business strategy/company vision.

    Pros

    + calibre of colleagues is great + truly global reach + high ethics + reasonably good compensation and benefits + Good healthcare and investing in safety

    Cons

    - has become very short-term and implementing savings that may turn out costly in terms of employee engagament - though global, culture is very American - poor work-life balance - lack of empowerment - slow decision-making and complex processes - no longer fully lives up to its pronounced values

    I have been working at DuPont full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I started with DuPont out of college in 2011. Having been at 4 different sites in that time, this is a summary of what I've experienced. Great 401k program: 100% match up to 6% plus 3% extra from company Competitive pay for the chemical industry Excellent diversity within the company - both employees and business units Managers and peers care about you Ellen Kullman had the right idea of keeping the company together

    Cons

    Slow decision making, small sites are better than large sites Poor handle on capital investments - very little growth projects Have lost many great colleagues due to layoffs, spin-offs and sales Too many managers, not enough employees at the production sites Too many headquartered in Wilmington that cripple decision making processes Never enough resources committed to make something work causing projects to drag out Corporate rollouts and initiatives, but this has lighted up in the last few years Little to no formal classroom training, there used to be much more 5 years ago Wide differences between rewards and celebrations between sites, less than there used to be Constant change does not let up
