    Pros

    You will gain some of the most in-depth knowledge of crop protection available in the horticultural industry. The expertise of management far surpass that of the norm,

    Cons

    The politics of big agribusiness are a bit stifling and can slow down really great ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Find the fire in all your employees, even the interns who show the most desire to be part of something bigger than themselves.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
