      Pros

      The pros for working at DuPont: - High ethics among employees - Passion for creating products that help protect people and make their lives better - Long history of innovation - Great co-workers

      Cons

      The Cons of working at DuPont - Recent merger with Dow and subsequent split into 3 companies leaves individual companies that are smaller than they were before ... leading to fewer opportunities for advancement - Very flat organization ... ability to be promoted within current job roles exists, but new jobs at higher levels are slower to be available due to flat organization and the fact that many employees have been at the company 20 years or more and aren't leaving until retirement ... thus not opening up as many opportunities for promotion - Some jobs do not have well defined career paths - Salary and bonuses are lagging comparable jobs at other companies
