    I have been working at Syngenta

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Syngenta full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone in the science field I've worked with have been easy to work with and get along well. Benefits such as health insurance, 401k and stock purchase matching (up to a certain percent), seem pretty good.

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive, especially at lower levels, and raises are pretty much non-existent. There's also no work-life balance, to speak of. You're not really expected to have a life outside of work and the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to keep your scientists around longer, pay better. Turnover and training really hamper efficiency and growth of sectors.
