    I have been working at DuPont full-time for less than a year

    Excellent benefits (health, dental, LTIP, generous contributory pension), fantastic work-life balance, flexible working opportunities (including remote worker contracts). Respectful and inclusive culture, lots of opportunities to learn and participate in new and interesting projects.

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

    Pros

    Best colleagues one could imagine, tremendous technical challenges and capabilities

    Cons

    Activist investors, and management that listens to them, are in the process of dismantling one of the great companies of the 20th century. Our CEO now says "no more moon shots". Where's the shareholder value supposedly unleashed with all the financial engineering? Some people would call that a "moon shot" that failed.

    Its nice to educate n imbibe the original DuPont culture n core values in the new leaders as well. This makes lives of the existing employees smooth to work.
