    I worked at DuPont Pioneer full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The money was great for a 17yr old; $12.50/hr!

    Cons

    The job itself was miserable. Super hot weather in the dead of summer, walking up and down rows of corn all day long, counting them aloud to the field assistant. You have to wear long sleeves and long denim in the field. 8hrs of blistering heat & 1 30 minute break. I had to quit, it was m.i.s.e.r.a.b.l.e

    I have been working at DuPont Pioneer full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome benefits like cheap health insurance and 6% matching 401k contribution in addition to a 3% automatic contribution, so you can put in 6% of your salary and the company contributes 9%. The 3% automatic contribution just started last year to replace half of their traditional pension plan benefits.

    Cons

    There are good managers and bad managers. If you have a good manager your life is great, if you have a bad manager you job isn't so enjoyable.
