I worked at Syngenta full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Benefits are good. Advancement opportunities are good if you are willing to re-locate.

Cons

Very political. If you are not part of the inner circle, your life will be miserable. Senior management moves around, so in a lot of cases they are not experts in the field they are guiding. Constant change without good communication. Very corporate with a great deal of reporting requirements, which causes micro managing. No life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to those that really know the industry you are in, set a direction, and let your employees be successful.
