Pros

Good work and social life balance. Opportunity to work with talented and brilliant scientists. Opportunity to be involved in innovative projects. I really enjoyed working there. Relaxed atmosphere, flexitime helps.

Cons

Salary was average, very disappointed as Syngenta is the worlds biggest agrochemical company . Salary rise was low despite record profits and sales. Most definitely lower than competitors I.e. Bayer, Dow, DuPont, Monsanto and BASF. NO OVERTIME despite working more than 40 hours a week. Career progression is non existent to a non- Phd holder. Too much politics. Job is always under treat, I feel like I'm one mistake away from being being replaced. I don't feel appreciated despite my best efforts.

Advice to Management

Senior management sucks to be honest. Very short term oriented needs to retain employees.

    Too big an organisation its should be leaner

    Advice to Management

    Keep business seperated rather than have an integrated approach at the market place, Focus gets lacking
