    Pros

    Great balance between personal and professional life. The salaries were good compared to competitors. Good training program for employees. Nice and friendly environment. Good values

    Cons

    I have worked in Venezuela for the Performance Coatings division before it was sold to Axalta and from my experience I found hard to build up a career. The structure of the organization was very flat and change was hard to achieve. The future of the companies business is not clear yet

    Pros

    - Great Atmosphere
    - Very friendly people
     - Fantastic benefits package
    - Large company, and tons of opportunity to move laterally across differrent businesses.

    Cons

    - A culture of incompetency that is begining to change
    - Employees have been there too long and need to focus more on business profit vs. how hard you have to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Focus more on profit
    - Ensure employees are working hard enough. Too many tenured employees taking advantage and working way less than they should be

    Pros

    They have always given the opportunity to better yourself within the company. I have been lucky enough in my 15 year career to work in 4 of the 7 'plants' on site and gained a lot of experience that working for another company would not have allowed. Safety is truly a core value, and what they teach you at work applies to your home life in a lot of circumstances.

    Cons

    Due to the economy and changes within the company, job stability is very unstable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of micromanaging the people who are good at their jobs and actually care about the business, deal with the people who are incompetent and unwilling to learn. People were hired to be operators and self managed...not babysitters and ran into the ground doing other peoples work.

    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.
