I worked at Syngenta Seeds full-time for less than a year

Pros

Very competitive pay, outdoor work environment, relaxed management. If you're a hard worker opportunities for additional work, late into the season, will be presented. I found this work to be far more enjoyable and relaxing than any factory job, so if you need seasonal work don't pass a job like this up.

Cons

Seasonal work, little to do during bad weather. Some may not like the fact that you work with people of all ages; meaning high school students, to individuals in their forties.

    I worked at Syngenta Seeds

    Pros

    Promotes rotation within the company, great investment in employees careers via technical and leadership classses

    Cons

    politically charged, no information sharing, disconnected, hard to determine who does what due to constant changes, poor communication of how we are getting from A to C, long hours with limited praise, third party vendor does not take responsibility for quality of work, no plan to bring third party up to expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work more closely with lower level managers to develope plans to work through issues, communicate expectations clearly.
