I have been working at Syngenta full-time (More than 10 years)
Syngenta has made great improvements in the last 2 years. More focus on people and building a winning culture, back to feeling like a "family".
Challenging Industry conditions put pressure on teams to perform and on the bottom line. Cost savings have been challenging, but feel like they are helping to get us better positioned for the future.
Advice to Management
Continue to trust your teams. Offer direction and allow them to work to deliver.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Syngenta (Durham, NC) in May 2012.
I had one face to face interview; spent half hour with two developers, compared notes on development experiences, discussed amount of experience in certain areas; not very many direct questions and those that were were not too technical. Spent last half hour with same developers joined by IT manager who gave 50K foot view of IT roles/reputation in the company. Overall, interview was quite laid back and not too challenging. Gut feel at the end of the process was that it may result in an offer. However, I have not heard back from IT manager one way or the other so don't know if offer is in the cards.
