    Pros

    The people at DuPont really practice what they preach when it comes to the core values which is great to see in such a large, and established corporation. The work was slow at times, but everyone was so helpful and willing to talk with me so I could get a more broad sense of the company and different functions.

    Cons

    Work was slow and boring.

    Current Employee - Mid-Level Professional in Wilmington, DE (US)

    Pros

    It's been around a long time, and stable for the most part. The pay is decent.

    Cons

    The benefits were once great, but they keep chipping away. A lot of uncertainty with spinoffs and downsizing and a total change in the direction of the company. Also, the reasons for promoting or not promoting are a bit baffling. There are golden boys/girls who get the best opportunities. Also a lot of inefficiency, dead wood and people doing very little work, while others are working their butts off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually BE transparent instead of saying you are going to be.

    Pros

    Strong company culture centered on core values, with emphasis on ethics and safety. The team members who I work with are passionate, logical, and helpful.

    Cons

    Comparatively decent work-life balance and medical benefits. Leadership seems to be driven by wall street expectations than blazing a new trail to define their own destiny.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees could use more help with drawing up the right scope of decision and power that optimizes decision making without the need for meetings after meetings to prepare the discussion with senior leaders who in the end would like to hand-off the decision.
