Strong Core Values, excellent training, smart people
Global Category Manager (Current Employee) – Wilmington, DE – February 12, 2016
DuPont Company has strong core values and management is supportive of those values. It is a science driven company with many strong scientists and excellent technical resource. The turmoil during this time of merger with DuPont is distracting.
Enjoyable until Dupont bought out Pioneer Hi-Bred Int.
Logistics Specialist Basic (Former Employee) – Woodhull, IL – February 12, 2016
Enjoyed the seasonal work at Dupont Pioneer over 35 years of service, Work life balance was ok, if you knew that you had to work extra hrs. in peak seasons. Company can be stressful during peak times and laid back at others..Quick learner on Logistics, and SAP, ,WMS programs to manage whse in a much more efficient way.
Bonus's and good benefits, different jobs throughout year.
Short lunch breaks, different work schedules, lack of qualified employeess
Territory Manager (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – February 11, 2016
I worked from a home office. I had a specific area of small and big box accounts that I visited daily to teach and train all of ther employees on the Dupont Stainmaster products so they may sell the Dupont products effectively.I gained new accounts and cultivated existing accounts. Contract negotiations were attainable with the level of investment the business foresaw. I had to increase market share with this product and retail concepts.
Global Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – Wilmington, DE – February 9, 2016
Clearly a company that is in a period of change. It has been a great place to work for many years but the new leadership of the company has begun a journey to change that will impact the company for many years.
Great place to work before their current situation. Too many unknowns at the moment. Hard to comment
Accountant Sr (Current Employee) – Wilmington, DE – February 7, 2016
Great environment, great coworkers, Great benefits and work/life balance. Many opportunities to work on many different projects. Not micro-managed. Held to be responsible for your own work. Lots of HR/Required tasks, but good training to have. One of the hardest parts of the job is understanding the organizational structure and knowing who is who and knowing who you need to contact for what. Sometimes feels like too big of a company with a confusing structure and fragmented.
Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Fort Madison, IA – February 1, 2016
DuPont is a great company to work for regarding wages and benefits. My typical day is pretty structured, and for the most part, very routine. I have gained an incredible amount of knowledge while working for DuPont. The management at the Fort Madison site is great. I feel very comfortable communicating any issues or concerns. I have a good team of co-workers, several with whom I work very closely. The hardest part of the job has been due to the recent "restructuring" program related to the Dow DuPont merger. The work load is heavy, and I have multiple job titles. I do like to keep busy and mange my positions very well; however, with all of the recent job cuts I have been left with very few resources. I have always worked for family oriented businesses and still have a difficult time adjusting to the corporate lifestyle. The most enjoyable part of my job is the people that I get to work with. Most of us are on the same page and provide good support for one another.
Wages, benefits and our Lunch Group.
Heavy workload, limited resources, corporate feel.
Service Manager/Technical Support Representative (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – January 19, 2016
DuPont has been an outstanding place to work. The culture is people and safety oriented with a diversity beyond any other. Ethical practices and Respect for employees and customers are values that are highly regarded at DuPont and encouraged daily.
The caliber of people
Too Shareholder driven. Lost the incentive to be cutting edge

Research Associate (Current Employee) – Newark, DE – January 7, 2016
Typical work day varied. I learned how to be flexible and adaptable with great leadership in co-workers who mentored me. The hardest part of the job was being in a large company promotions with a job title change, bonuses, and rewards were hard to come-by or earn. The best part of this job was the professionalism with the small and young team that I developed my career with.
Mentoring co-workers, Flexibility, Adaptability, Small Specialized Team
