    Former Employee - Security and Compliance Analyst in Virginia Beach, VA

    I worked at Syngenta as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Syngenta offers monetary bonuses for all types of accomplishments including staying healthy, meeting sales quotas, and just doing a great job.

    Cons

    Syngenta uses a large pool of contract labor and seems to have a high turnover rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people permanently instead of training them and then letting them go. There is too much time, money, and effort being wasted when retention of good employees would better suit the bottom line.

    I worked at Syngenta full-time (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.
