    I have been working at Syngenta full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Syngenta has a great culture. The atmosphere is professional and business casual. The people are great to work with and respectful. The company is a solid performer and is continually improving and growing. I personally enjoy the chances we have to work with other cultures around the world. The main benefit to working here is that it is big enough to allow opportunities in many areas. When you want a change, you can move within the organization without losing benefits and starting over.

    Cons

    The global nature of the company is a great positive, but it also means you're not 100% on your own. Collaboration and teamwork are key to success.

    Advice to Management

    I am excited about the strategy and new ideas coming forward! A big thank you for the great support and energy propelling us forward!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Syngenta (Clinton, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online with resume. Called immediately to set up interview. When I went in I realized it was the recruiting firm that does the hiring for Syngenta. Filled out an application and then waited and waited. I believe I may have been forgotten.
