    I worked at Syngenta full-time (more than 5 years)


    The benefits are unheard of in this day and age.Training and room for advancement (if you want to relocate) are available and encouraged. The pay is OK, better than most companies.


    The company's switch to outsourcing HR, AP made doing the job a lot more difficult. There is no HR presence at most sites. Communication throughout the company could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pass on more information with fewer acronyms - the people might understand what's going on a little better.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Syngenta.

    Interview Details

    Classic CV + cover letter screening round, followed by a telephone interview to understand 'fit', motivation and compatibility with Syngenta's leadership model. After this, there is a 1.5 day assessment center at HQ in Basel, which is a mixture of one-on-one interviews and group exercises. Components included a business case in the agriculture sector (fairly obviously, I imagine), and two rounds of group negotiations. There were around 12 of us at the assessment centre, and about 12 managers 'observing' each and every reaction - so the environment is rather 'staged'. Decisions were made relatively quickly, requiring full consensus from all those you interacted with.
