    I worked at DuPont full-time

    Pros

    DuPont has a very extensive list of SBUs. The IT group supports the broader global business so there are always paths forward to develop your expertise and set your long term goals.

    Cons

    As with many mega-organizations, DuPont has difficulty adopting and implementing new strategies. There are cost considerations and deployment concerns. Change moves slowly.

    Advice to Management

    The recent merger with Dow Chemicals and proposed separation into 3 businesses has placed a heavy burden on the business and IT organizations of both companies. While the long term outcome is expected to be positive - remember to appreciate, & don’t burn out the staff that will get you where you want to go - they care about the overall organization more than exec management does.

    I have been working at DuPont full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Spent 23 years of my professional career with DuPont, obviously a great company that values compliance and ethics. Average wages and benefits, excellent safety culture.

    Cons

    DuPont has been transformed with the merger of Dow and DuPont, unfortunately now the mandate is grow at all expense to the Customer. Annual raise freezes, unrealistic incentive targets, pension has been reduced to bare minimum. DuPont was previously a company envied be many but this is not the case anymore. Very unfortunate and the reason I have parted ways.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your most valuable asset and have built this company, do not continue treating them like a commodity. Treat your customers with the respect that they deserve.

    I have been working at DuPont full-time

    Pros

    - great people with lots of knowledge - collaborative and open work culture - in general caring at least in words - DuPont legacy- a great company, alas no longer

    Cons

    - dated materials with glossier prints don't make it better - do something drastic to fix abject performance - not just reorganize nth time or look to a few chosen ones as be all and end all of DSS business. - care to listen and thou shall see the real issues - remove opacity - very uncertain future with no option but to bide time. - DuPont legacy - too much dependence. knowledge and people - clients don't... care much anymore about brand. - some totally incompetent and selfish (conflicting goals_ yet in no intervention)

    Advice to Management

    - be bold to do the necessary surgery to fix systemic issues and a culture of a few chosen ones running the show. - God forbid there may be some people with legitimate concerns, do something about it. - link your performance directly to performance of people who work for you. end stop preferential treatment for loud voices, shallow and "in crowd".
