General Operator (Former Employee) – Towanda, PA – February 13, 2019
This site was tainted by such an intense Us vs. Them mentality. A central cabal ran the plant, even to the detriment of any plant manager that came in. Advancement was non-existent. You were expected to be stagnant and thankful that you even had a job. All the promises for career development only to get washed away in the next downsizing.
Operator/Laborer (Former Employee) – Tonawanda, NY – February 12, 2019
If you enjoy a stressful work environment and poor management within a company this place is for you. They have changed the pay rates and if you decide to work here you can be making less than the person you are working with by $5 or more an hour. Lots of overtime and people are being forced to work on there days off. So that being said if you want to work all the time with no time for family go for it.
QC LAB TECH II (Former Employee) – New Century, KS – February 11, 2019
DuPont enforces their core values and safety everyday! I enjoyed my job, management and being part of their team. I appreciate the opportunity and the development of my position. There were four shifts and everyone worked hard to accomplish are daily goals. The hardest part of the job was working 12.5 hours for your shift.

Relations Manager, Human Resources /Labor (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – February 7, 2019
Even though I worked with DuPont for a number of years I always thought they didn't use more of their employees ideas. DuPont has been around for over 200 years but they never looked at what was needed to stay in the game. They let their competitors take a lot of their share of the profits clearing because they didn't know or refused to plan for the future.
Working with big groups of people
Did not get the compensation I feel I should have for all the knowledge I acquired.
Senior Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – February 6, 2019
I held several positions within Dupont and as a result it is difficult to describe a typical day. Days were always active and a chance to learn and improve your knowledge as well as add your creative ideas to the project. Always felt productive and creative when I worked there. Was always given the opportunity to contribute and make a difference.
Process Historian Engineer/ Controls Engineer (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – January 30, 2019
The job that was posted was grossly mis-represented. Job responsibilities were far in excess of the job description and far in excess of the qualifications they desired for the position. Several pe OP ple had abandoned this job prior due to the same issues.

February 2019 Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Rushville, IN – January 26, 2019
DuPont Pioneer is a very mature company that has a lot to offer. In the seed production area that I was in there is a lot of variety to the jobs one would do on a daily basis and through out the change of seasons.
Poorly managed at site level with little to no room for advancement.
Technician (Current Employee) – Illinois – January 22, 2019
I am sure this sounds like sour grapes, but it is the truth. The site I worked at tried to save itself to riches. It would not spend on even the essentials needed to run the plant. Continually down due to lack of materials or lack of general plant maintenance. They allowed people to sit in break room for whole eight hour shift if line was scheduled down because "there could be no injuries" if no one did any work. They had the same for shift managers for over 15 years so with no movement up front there was no chance for advancement.
