Sr. Associate Chemist (Former Employee), Newark, DE – June 25, 2013
DuPont is a great place to get your feet wet. There you will learn and have all the tools necessary to advance your chemical expertise as well as learning how the corporate world works. It is also great at accommodating someones life. weather that is because of sickness, family events, birth etc. The only negative I can give it is if you do not have – more... a PhD and wish to remain in the technical track you have a very low glass cealing. – less

The best part of the job is that we're a self managed home based team. But, this job requires many hours of overtime.
Order Coordinator (Current Employee), Wilmington, DE – June 18, 2013
Pros: home based
Cons: lots of overtime hours
This is a very analytical position requiring strong organizational and superior interpersonal skills. I've worked for this company for 36+ years and was CTP'd in 2009 due to the ailing economy. A four person team was reduced to two. After a year, DuPont called me back as a contractor doing the same job from which I was let go from, which I've been now – more... doing for three years. MYcurrent position opened up for a full-time person, and DuPont awarded the job to a person with no expertise in the job. What I've learned is that you can work your life for a company, but there is no loyalty in the end. I love my job and have had many awards awarded to me, but now seeking a new position. – less
Process Specialist (Former Employee), Tonawanda, NY – June 10, 2013
Pros: great pay.
Cons: job security
DuPont was a great place to work. The pay was amazing and the hours were definitely easy to work through. Although management structure wasn't amazing, overall I would rate my time there as a positive experience.
Welder/Fitter (Former Employee), Memphis, TN – June 7, 2013
Pros: good money, ok benefits.
Cons: no place for advancement.
Dupont is a large company and being part of a large company, you tend to get lost in the shuffle. People didn't talk much and it reminded me of worker ants falling in line to do their job and there was always tension in the air. I love welding but that was not a job i enjoyed.
Laid-back work environment, great management, enjoyable work.
R&D Laboratory Technician (Former Employee), Wilmington, DE – June 3, 2013
Pros: diversity of work and flexible schedule.
Cons: pay, lack of benefits, not treated as a valuable employee.
I worked at two different sites, with my time split equally. At one site I worked alone in the fuel aging lab performing maintenance of test specimens and reporting data from testing. At the other site I was part of a team and performed instrumental analysis on polymers and reported the data. The majority of my co-workers were friendly and pleasant – more... to work with. Direct management were all a pleasure to work for. The hardest part of the job was being a contractor. I worked side by side with people earning more than twice my salary and I often did more work than they did. I did not have any paid vacation or sick days and was not eligible for any company recognition for my work because I was a contractor. I was promised a raise after one year but that did not occur. I enjoyed the flexibility in my schedule, the laid back atmosphere, and the diversity of my work. – less

Lab Technician (Former Employee), Mount Clemens, MI – March 27, 2013
very enjoyable job. Co workers became and still are close personal friends still. Every day was different because of the nature of the work which made it exciting and new most of the time. I learned a great deal of different testing methods, some of which were boring and tedious but for the most part it was nice. There were a couple of managers that – more... I didn't get along with but all of my immediate supervisors over the years were great and am still in touch with a couple of them. – less
