I worked at Syngenta full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Benefits are good. Advancement opportunities are good if you are willing to re-locate.

Cons

Very political. If you are not part of the inner circle, your life will be miserable. Senior management moves around, so in a lot of cases they are not experts in the field they are guiding. Constant change without good communication. Very corporate with a great deal of reporting requirements, which causes micro managing. No life balance.

Advice to Management

Listen to those that really know the industry you are in, set a direction, and let your employees be successful.

    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.

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