Pros

Passion of Syngenta is 'feeding the world" In general people all belive in the importance and impact of their work. There are parts of the organization very dedicated to pursuit of science advancement. Syngenta won a best place to work in science nod in Science magazine this year.

Cons

Very limited opportunities for advancement and very little emphasis on employee development. There is a belief that people believe so much in the 'cause' that there is no need to fully engage all employees that do not want purely technical advancement.

Advice to Management

Recognize the demographics of the company and place more emphasis on retention and career growth of the current employees. Ask the hard questions and enter the debates with various business units to gain awareness.

    Pros

    The people are great, dedicated and very hard working. Due to the constant change it is hardly ever boring.

    Cons

    Too much change. Syngenta can't seem to find it's feet. The company relies too much on an outsourcing model. It expects employees to do both project work as well as their day jobs. The pay is OK, some managers are better than others (like at many other companies). I would be very cautious recommending this company to a friend.
