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

    Pros

    Good salaries and working environment. Lots of opportunities to try new skills. Good diversity and tolerance policy. You can always get a support

    Cons

    Not always proper guidance, in times of merge difficult to find a proper person in charge of anything. Future about AGCo is keeping in the dark.

    Former Employee - Research Associate in Edmonton, AB

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

    Pros

    The company had a fairly supportive working environment and encouraged continuing education. Focus on quality research and products.

    Cons

    Work life balance wasn't ideal and extensive overtime is expected. Upper management has unrealistic expectations of what can be done with little resources (monetary and staffing). Extensive change has led to instability during the recent merger and spin.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment and team oriented. There is a lot of intelligent, kind-hearted people here. Everyone will pull together to get things done.

    Cons

    There is a tendency towards silos and at times people can be pretty territorial. There is some fear of making the wrong decision, so no decisions are made. Lots and lots of meetings.

    I worked at Pioneer full-time

    Pros

    Strong history. Good employees - like most places work environment varies by manager. Great long-term mission. Watch for improvement in 2017.

    Seeing impact of management decisions. Current DuPont board changes has led to poor morale during time of layoffs, merger uncertainty, leadership uncertainty, etc.
