    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Pioneer full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If you have or get a job with Pioneer currently, you are in good shape (I think).

    Cons

    DuPont focuses on Wall Street valuations...DuPont Pioneer (e.g. Corteva) was a golden child in the 2005-2014 era until prices for AG commodities fell. I suspect cost cutting measures are severe now until commodity prices improve (as of Dec'19).
