    One of the biggest excuses for a company. Ever!

    Marketing and Sales Development Manager (Former Employee) Waterloo, NE

    ProsIf you want to work in the government, but can't find a job there, Syngenta would be great for you.

    ConsSyngenta can't get out of there own way. The BEST people have left over the past 7 years. What is left is average, slow, non passionate people that are not making the company a great company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire yourselves....

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disappointing

    Trials Officer (Former Employee) Halsall, England (UK)

    ProsI got to work with wonderful plants and new varieties.

    ConsI suffered a terrible manager who was more interested in his secretary and pub lunches than achieving team goals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo some actual work!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worst company I've ever worked for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Basel (Switzerland)

    Pros- salary and benefits are ok

    Cons- micro management and too American
    - incompetent managers, everything in europe dictated by Americans who are not qualified to advise on european legal matters (but think they are)
    - nasty back-stabbing culture
    -no support from line managers and HR
    -no flexibility as regards working from home
    - no teamwork, hostility and most people too afraid of losing their jobs to speak out
    - very badly organised with too many layers and duplication of senior management roles

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrow up and sort yourselves out. Too much politics going on and the best interests of the business are overlooked because of this.
    Senior management overall badly overdue

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
